Abstract :We investigate the temperature structures of Tropical Cyclone Saomai in the images of the Global Meteorological Satellite (GMS). Referring the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) data, we find a new method to evaluate coarse rainfall structures of the typhoon by discriminating cumulus rainy clouds from canopy clouds covering the typhoon. Our method has advantages to obtain the rain rate in a typhoon as a whole system whereas TRMM shows rain structures only in restricted regions and times. Evolution of the TC Saomai is briefly discussed through the evaluation of total latent heat release.
