Grant number: 16/16932-8
Support type:Scholarships in Brazil - Post-Doctorate
Effective date (Start): November 01, 2016
Effective date (End): October 31, 2018
Field of knowledge:Physical Sciences and Mathematics - Geosciences - Meteorology
Principal researcher:Luiz Augusto Toledo Machado
Grantee:Jean-François Ribaud
Home Institution: Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais (INPE). Ministério da Ciência, Tecnologia, Inovações e Comunicações (Brasil). São José dos Campos , SP, Brazil
Associated research grant:15/14497-0 - Nowcasting of intense thunderstorms and understanding of the physical processes inside clouds: the SOS-CHUVA (Severe Weather Observation System), AP.PFPMCG.TEM


The main goal is to develop research in nowcasting of intense thunderstorms, understanding the evolution of the cloud microphysics properties to improve forecast skill of intense precipitation events. The research will also work on the radar assimilation in numerical models to improve skill of precipitation forecast in the range of 0 to 6 hours and the study of microphysical process using dual-pol radar.
