Details

Tropical cyclones could bring about hazardous weather to the affected areas, including high winds and heavy rain. Located at a subtropical, coastal region, Hong Kong is normally under the influence of at least several tropical cyclones every summer. In order to monitor the adverse weather associated with the tropical cyclones, a number of remote-sensing meteorological instruments are operated by the Hong Kong Observatory (HKO). This book summarizes the observations by these sophisticated remote-sensing meteorological instruments for tropical cyclones affecting the south China coastal areas near Hong Kong. (Imprint: Nova)
