Good morning to all,
You are all invited to attend a Research Presentation:

November 18, 2014 || 4:30 - 6:00 PM
Klima Conference Room, Manila Observatory

A research presentation on:
Climatic seasonal changes of rainfall
and circulation in the Philippines

Authors: Jun Matsumoto, Dzung Nguen-Le (Tokyo Metropolitan University)
and Marcelino Q. Villafuerte II (PAGASA)

Climatic seasonal changes of rainfall obtained by the TRMM and lower  
tropospheric circulation were analyzed based on pentad averaged data  
for the 16 year period 1998-2013. The seasonal changes in the  
Philippines have been only analyzed as onset and withdrawal of  
southwest and/or northeast monsoon seasons, and little attention has  
been paid on the alternation processes and the changes within each  
monsoon season. Also since, the existing PAGASA observation network is  
insufficient in the mountainous region, thus minute local rainfall  
features have not been understood yet. In this presentation, tentative  
results on the minute seasonal change processes by analyzing the 5-day  
mean climatology of TRMM rainfall and JRA55 circulation at 850 hPa  
will be presented.
