Yang, W.X.; Hu, Z.X.; Lei, H.C., and Li, B.D., 2020. Numerical simulation study on the microphysical processes of Typhoon Wipha using a new moisture conditioning method. In: Guido Aldana, P.A. and Kantamaneni, K. (eds.), Advances in Water Resources, Coastal Management, and Marine Science Technology. Journal of Coastal Research, Special Issue No. 104, pp. 156–159. Coconut Creek (Florida), ISSN 0749-0208.

With the non-static mesoscale model ARPS (Advanced Regional Prediction System), by using the NCEP/ NCAR global final analysis data, and the global surface and sounding data under MICAPS (Meteorological Information Comprehensive Analysis and Process System) assimilated in 4 dimensions as the initial field and lateral boundary conditions, the initial moisture field is adjusted according to the surface accumulated rain of each 6 h, and the triple nested simulation is conducted to produce 3 dimensional high time -spatial (Wipha) are analysed. The results are significant for understanding the cloud structure and the precipitation forming mechanisms of the Typhoon storm. It is found that the ice phase microphysical processes are the key storm mechanisms in different periods. The melting graupel confirms that the rain is the most important mechanism. The intensity of the production of graupel varies in accordance with the Typhoon.
