Abstract

Abstract: This paper presents the results of applied research on the TITAN software for the identification, monitoring and Instantaneous analysis of thunderstorms over Ho Chi Minh City area.  The Tstorms2Symprod algorithm in TITAN software is used to determine the thunderstorm cells and movement of the thunderstorm cells in the next hour, through the real-time reflectivity, based on smoothing of the TREC vectors. Integral along time using Lagrange diagrams. These integral diagrams within 60 minutes create 10 product apart about once every 6 minutes. The results of this software assessed with observation data at the station, the Cmax product (radar maximum reflectivity) and the Himawari 8 satellite image. Studies show that the TITAN model can capture the location, direction, and velocity, the scale of the thunderstorm cells. This important to the very short-range precipitation forecast for Ho Chi Minh City
