Abstract

To develop a successful model of Mesoscale Convective System (MCS) for space activity plan, we characterized the surface meteorological data (pressure, temperature, relative humidity) and precipitable water vapor (PWV) over Tawau, Malaysia. Global Positioning System (GPS) and surface meteorological data from 1 January 2009 to 30 December 2011 are processed in this analysis. We compared the PWV between GPS and Radiosonde for Tawau on a weekly basis for the year 2011 and found a strong relationship. For a three-year observation, the air pressure was decreased when the temperature was getting cold as well as for the PWV parameter and vice versa. From our analysis, the variation of surface meteorology and PWV were observed to be high during DJF (December, January and February) months which weredue to winter monsoon and frequent increasing of rainfall. However, the dry or clear season is observed to occur obviously in the end of May until August of 2009 to 2011.Based on this preliminary result, we suggest that the characteristics of meteorological phenomena should be properly treated to study the nature of MCS over the region.
