Dr. Ken-ichi Kuma
I am in charge of JMA global model, which was upgraded from T106L21 to
T213L30 in March 1996. In this version, I have implemented the Economical
Arakawa Schubert scheme in replace of Kuo's scheme. The change of the
convection scheme has a large impact on the typhoon track forecast.
