Announcement of ISEE Symposium International Conference on Heavy Rainfall and Tropical Cyclone in East Asia


The T-PARCII group is pleased to host the international conference on heavy rainfall and tropical cyclone in East Asia with the PRECIP, TAHOPE and KPOP groups.

Purpose of the symposium
Typhoons and heavy rainfalls are common issues in East Asian counties, and it is important to share the latest results of research on these topics for their scientific understanding as well as for disaster prevention. The purpose of this symposium is to summarize and exchange the latest results of research conducted in each country, and to summarize and share plans for the international joint observation campaign, which is planned for May to August 2022 by the United States, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan. Because of the pandemic of the corona virus, this symposium will be held in virtual (online).
