Meteorological Monitoring Books

  • Medium-Range Weather Prediction

    This book provides an overview of the early years of the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts and reviews the work of the institute over the past 30 years. As such it describes the European approach to medium-range weather ...

  • Radar Meteorology

    This book covers the entire range of developments in the operational and research use of RADAR for meteorological applications, such as aviation, precipitation measurement and hydrology, tropical cyclone observation and forecasting and wind profiling. The book emphasises the operational aspects of Radar Meteorology. It also traces the evolution of ...

  • Atmospheric Convection: Research and Operational Forecasting Aspects

    A book on atmospheric convection treated in detail from different angles including the theoretical aspects of atmospheric deep convection and the weather phenomena related to convection. The problem of boundary conditions that result in severe convective weather patterns is explored within the framework of worldwide climatology and weather ...

  • Synoptic–Dynamic Meteorology and Weather Analysis and Forecasting: A Tribute to Fred Sanders

    Key scientific research by authors including Kerry Emanuel, Robert Burpee, Edwin Kessler, and Louis Uccellini illustrates the evolution of the fields of synoptic meteorology, weather analysis, forecasting, and climatology. It is published in honor of the late Fred Sanders, emeritus professor of meteorology at MIT, whose influence was vast: he ...

  • Microwave Radiation of the Ocean-Atmosphere

    Aimed at scientists using satellite microwave radiometry to study remote sensing of the heat and dynamic interaction between ocean and atmosphere, this text is a fully revised and expanded edition of the authors’ 2004 monograph 'Intercorrelation between Natural Microwave Radiation of the Ocean-Atmosphere System and its Boundary Heat and Dynamic ...

  • Cloud-Resolving Modeling of Convective Processes

    Clouds and cloud systems and their interactions with larger scales of motion, radiation, and the Earth’s surface are extremely important parts of weather and climate systems. Their treatment in weather forecast and climate models is a significant source of errors and uncertainty. As computer power increases, it is beginning to be possible to ...

  • Computational Atmospheric Acoustics

    Noise from cars, trains, and aeroplanes can be heard at large distances from the source. Accurate predictions of the loudness of the noise require accurate computations of sound propagation in the atmosphere. This book describes models that can be used for these computations. The models take into account complex effects of the atmosphere and ...

  • An Introduction to Global Spectral Modeling

    This introductory book on numerical weather prediction focuses on the spectral transform method, which is an important component for global weather forecasts at numerous operational centers. Therefore, it is an indispensable guide to the methods being used by nearly all major weather forecast centers in the United States, England, Japan, India, ...

  • Micrometeorology

    This book focuses on atmospheric processes which directly effect human environments within the lowest 100-1000 meters of the atmosphere over regions of only a few kilometers in extent. The book is the English translation of the second edition of the German book 'Applied Meteorology – Micrometeorological Methods'. It presents, with selected ...

  • Applied Hydrometeorology

    This book 'Applied Hydrometeorology' is intended to serve as a text for senior undergraduate or beginning undergraduate courses in hydrometeorology, and will also be of value to practicing engineers and hydrologists engaged in the planning, design, development, and management of water resources. The subject matter has been developed in a logical ...

  • Adaptive Optics for Astronomy

    The blossoming of adaptive optical techniques has brought about a revolution in the field of astronomical observation. Coupled with the new generation of large, ground-based telescopes, it allows us to achieve an unprecendented angular resolution in the analysis of faint astronomical sources at optical wavelengths. This book provides the ...

  • Interdisciplinary Aspects of Turbulence

    The interdisciplinary aspects of turbulence are brought together in this volume containing chapters written by experts from very diverse fields, including geophysics, astrophysics, and engineering. It covers several subjects on which considerable progress was made during the last decades, from questions concerning the very nature of turbulence to ...
