Overview

"Bringing together leading researchers, this volume surveys recent developments in the fields of atmospheric turbulence and mesoscale meteorology, with particular emphasis on the areas pioneered by Douglas K. Lilly." Researchers and graduate students will find the book to be an excellent resource summarizing the development of techniques as well as current and future work in the fields of atmospheric turbulence and mesoscale meteorology.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Judging from this book, Doug Lilly seems to have integrated all these phenomena, processes, issues, and approaches into a uniquely broad and scientific outlook...The glowing tributes in this book indicate that [Lilly] has also been a masterful teacher, a revered mentor, and a treasured colleague to many current leading lights of the field of meteorology. This book, a sampler of new and vital science material, rich with glimpses of the human and historical side of the field, seems a fitting tribute." - Brian E. Mapes, University of Miami

"In the vast body of literature on special subjects in meteorology this book serves as something like a lighthouse...In this respect the book is not only a valuable contribution to computational fluid dynamics and mesoscale meteorology but also to the recent history of natural sciences. The reviewer can easily agree with the last sentence on the backside cover of the book stating that researchers and graduate students will find this book to be an excellent resource summarizing the development of techniques as well as current and future work in the fields of atmospheric turbulence and mesoscale meteorology." - S. Emeis, Wilhelm
