[ Purpose ]

PALAU (Pacific Area Long-term Atmospheric observation for Understanding of climate change) project aims to contribute to the elucidation of the effect of tropical weather to climate. For a better understanding of air-sea interactions and cloud-precipitation processes over the warm pool in tropics, there is a need to further investigation on the Western Pacific monsoon and the tropical-extratropical interactions. Toward these objectives, we are conducting weather observations around Palau by using lidar, disdrometer, and other equipments.
