Abstract

The major purpose of this research is to apply a method in retrieving the mperature and dew point profiles from the MODIS and NOAA satellite data, where hey can be applied in the analysis of summer afternoon convection. etrievals were then employed to estimate the atmospheric stability index or K index KI), the total index or Total Totals Index (TTI), the water vapor content, along with ther atmospheric thermal parameters. In addition, ground station data was used to alculate the divergence field in delineating the atmospheric dynamic parameters. his research chose convection cases that occurred between June to September of 2003 o set up the threshold value of three important parameters - Atmospheric stability ndex, Water vapor content and Divergence field. Convection cases recorded between une to September of 2004 and 2005, were then employed for verification. By onsidering all three parameters, the results showed that the prediction accuracy for ctual convection activity during 2004 and 2005 reached 76% and 74 %, respectively; emonstrating the practical applications in this method.
