Overview

The second edition of Mesoscale Meteorological Modeling is a fully revised resource for researchers and practitioners in the growing field of meteorological modeling at the mesoscale. Pielke has enhanced the new edition by quantifying model capability (uncertainty) by a detailed evaluation of the assumptions of parameterization and error propagation. Mesoscale models are applied in a wide variety of studies, including weather prediction, regional and local climate assessments, and air pollution investigations.

Editorial Reviews

The second edition of this resource for researchers and practitioners is expanded with the introduction of a new perspective on analyzing meteorological modeling capabilities. Fundamental conservation relations are introduced, equations are averaged to conform to a mesoscale model grid mesh, and types of models are discussed and their advantages and disadvantages are examined with respect to simulation of mesoscale phenomena. A transformation of the equations to a generalized coordinate representation is given, and the parameterizations in a mesoscale model of the planetary boundary layer, electromagnetic radiation, and moist thermodynamics are introduced. Mesoscale models are applied in a variety of studies, including weather prediction, regional and local climate assessments, and air pollution investigations. Problems are new to this edition. Pielke teaches atmospheric science at Colorado State University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
