The Tawian Experimental Atmospheric Mobile-Radar (TEAM-R) is Taiwan's first mobile meteorolgical radar. Its construction was supported under a joint project issued to three institutes in Taiwan, including National Central University, National Taiwan University, and Chinese Culture University. TEAM-R is a X-band dual-polarimetric radar. After completing its construction in March, 2008, TEAM-R participated the SouthWest Monsoon Experiment, also known as Terrain-influenced Monsoon Rainfall Experiment (SoWMEX/TiMREX), conducted from May to June, 2008 in southern Taiwan. TEAM-R stationed at four different sites in the field for 50 consecutive days. The accumulated operational time was approximately 620 hours. At the early stage of the field experiment, TEAM-R was deployed at the same location with NCAR S-POL. This paper demonstrates a few cases of the TEAM-R measurements during SoWMEX/TiMREX, and shows the results of the attenuation correction using S-POL data sets.
