Borneo Squall Line (BSL) is a disaster risk associated with intense rain and wind gust that affect the activities and residence near the northern coast of Borneo. Using 3-hourly rainfall from Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) 3B42V7 during southwest monsoon season (May–September) from 1998–2018, a total of 629 squall days were identified. Their monthly and annual average was 6 and 30 days, respectively, with July representing the month with the highest number of squall line days. BSL…

Diurnal Cycle in Different Weather Regimes and Rainfall Variability over Borneo Associated with ENSO

AbstractThe interannual variability of precipitation over the island of Borneo in association with El Nino–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) has been studied by using the Global Precipitation Climatology

The Formation of Nocturnal Rainfall Offshore from Convection over Western Kalimantan (Borneo) Island

This study investigates the diurnal variation of convection over western Kalimantan (Borneo) Island and the adjacent seas through analysis of results from surface meteorological observations,

The Impact of Orographically-Induced Gravity Waves on the Diurnal Cycle of Rainfall over Southeast Kalimantan Island

Abstract Precipitation measurements from the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite indicate that the southeastern area of Kalimantan (Borneo) Island receives much less rainfall than

Severe Convection Features in the Amazon Basin: A TRMM-Based 15-Year Evaluation

Rainfall in the Amazon Basin is very heterogeneous, mainly because the area encompassed is quite large. Among the systems responsible for rainfall, some stand out as extreme storm events. This study

Synoptic Disturbances over the Equatorial South China Sea and Western Maritime Continent during Boreal Winter

Abstract During boreal winter, the Maritime Continent is a region of deep cumulus convection and heavy precipitation systems that play a major role in several global- and regional-scale processes.

The Impact of Concave Coastline on Rainfall Offshore Distribution over Indonesian Maritime Continent

Investigation of the climatology of offshore rainfall based on TRMM 3B42 composite during 1998-2015 and its dynamical atmosphere which induces high rainfall intensity using WRF-ARW shows that concave coastline drives the increasing rainfall over ocean.

Assessment of Effective Seasonal Downscaling of TRMM Precipitation Data in Peninsular Malaysia

It was found that the ability of monthly TRMM data to depict rainfall variation and its tendency to propagate large errors varied seasonally.

Interactions among ENSO, the Monsoon, and Diurnal Cycle in Rainfall Variability over Java, Indonesia

Abstract Using a high-resolution regional climate model—the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics Regional Climate Model version 3 (RegCM3)—and station and satellite observations,

An Abrupt Decrease in the Late-Season Typhoon Activity over the Western North Pacific*

In 1995 an abrupt shift in the late-season (October–December) typhoon activity over the western North Pacific (WNP) is detected by a Bayesian changepoint analysis. Interestingly, a similar change also

Interannual variability of tropical cyclone activity in the southern South China Sea

[1] A study of tropical storm activity in the southern South China Sea region was carried out for the period of 1960 to 2006 using data obtained from the UNISYS website archive, which was provided to
