【自資系專題討論課演講公告】Guest talk: 9月19日(二)邀請黃火金教授(美國北卡大學愛雪费爾分校的客座教授)演講
講題:The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: I, Typhoon, and Research (全英演講)
演講者:Huo-Jin (Alex) Huang, 黃火金, Ph.D., University of North Carolina at Asheville (UNCA), Asheville, North Carolina, United States
颱風在臺灣的夏,秋季的天氣扮演極重要的角色。颱風對環境和社會的影響是有目共睹,親身經歷過的。在這個簡單的演講中,我將介紹我自己,簡述颱風的結構,動力和統計資料, 還有討論我將在東華大學做的研究。更具體來說,我將說明2007-2016年期間登路臺灣颱風所導致的降雨分布形式。台灣的極端降水並非都是颱風所造成的。同時颱風所造成在臺灣的極大降雨量通常是普遍但不對稱。還要注意的是,颱風所造成的降雨量取決於測站位置,地形,地理特徵,颱風的強度和水分含量,颱風移動方向及持續時間, 以及測站對颱風中心的相對位置及距離等多項因素。
小註:我是來自美國北卡大學愛雪费爾分校的客座教授。在這個簡單的演講,我想介紹一下自己,討論強烈熱帶氣旋(即颱風),並報告我將在東華大學進行的短期研究。雖然主要是用英文演講,但借助影像和圖表,您將能夠掌握演講的要點; 但更重要的是,您可單純地,沒有壓力地來聽演講。這將是我們互相的學習經驗;您的參與,我將不勝感激。
Title: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: I, Typhoon, and Research (English Speech)
Speaker: Dr. Huo-Jin Huang (University of North Carolina at Asheville, Asheville, North Carolina, United States)
Time & Date: 10:10-12:00, 19th (Tuesday) , Spetember 2017.
Venue: Room A114 & B119, Environmental Science Building
Typhoons play a significant, powerful role in Taiwan's weather in summer and fall.  The impacts of typhoons are recognized environmentally and societally.  In this general presentation, the structure, dynamics and climatology of typhoons will be discussed.   Specifically, the rainfall patterns caused by typhoons that made landfall to Taiwan during 2007-2016 will be investigated.  It is found that extreme precipitation in Taiwan is not all produced by typhoons.  The rainfall amounts in Taiwan caused by typhoons are usually widespread but asymmetrical.  It should also be noted that rainfall amounts by typhoons depend on many factors, such as location, terrain, geographical features, intensity and moisture content of the typhoon, duration and direction of the typhoon’s movement, and relative distance from the center of the typhoon and relative position to the center of the typhoon.
As a visiting professor from the University of North Carolina at Asheville, I would like to know you, interact with you, and learn from you as much as I could in a short period of time.  In this simple presentation, I would like to introduce myself, to share my understanding about strong tropical cyclones (i.e., typhoons), and to brief what I would like to accomplish in my short-term research at Dong Hwa University.   Although the presentation will be given mainly in English, it should not prevent you from coming.   With the aid of PowerPoint slides and graphics, you would be able to grasp the key points of the presentation; but more importantly, you can simply come and enjoy the presentation.  It will be a learning experience for both of us, and your participation will be greatly appreciated.
