Abstract

This paper aimed to quantify the thunderstorm occurrence in Tawau area as an initial step in order to develop a thunderstorm model for monitoring space activities. Surface meteorological data such as pressure, temperature, relative humidity, cloud cover, water vapor, wind speed and direction on a daily basis were analyzed. Characterization has been considering summer and winter monsoons in the targeted area. Results showed that the thunderstorm activities in May and October are detected higher than the other months due to the intermonsoon seasons. Our initial investigation found that the thunderstorm activity in this area is more affected by the surface meteorology such as relative humidity and water vapor.
