That would be awesome to finally get some good real time observations over there.
Looks like he is talking about the PRECIP project which will be conducted around Taiwan on May-August 2022 to study extreme rainfall in the Meiyu front, MCSs, and TCs. Taiwan/Japan and South Korea will each be deploying their own aircraft in addition to NOAA's. We'll probably see valuable observations regarding TC intensity too!
