46 Kyungpook National University 46 1). The present study shows that the precipitation structure and kinematic characteristics and structure of the precipitation developed along the Baiu front highly depends on its type, that is, cold-type or warm-type. 2). The analyzed Baiu frontal precipitation system were found to be composed of three different systems: convective system whose top higher than the melting level, stratiform cloud with bright band, and clouds developed along the vertical shear line of the horizontal wind.
