Overview

To effectively utilize mesoscale dynamical simulations of the atmosphere, it is necessary to have an understanding the basic physical and mathematical foundations of the models and to have an appreciation of how a particular atmospheric system works. Mesoscale Meteorological Modeling provides such an overview of mesoscale numerical modeling. Starting with fundamental concepts, this text can be used to evaluate the scientific basis of any simulation model that has been or will be developed. Basic material is provided for the beginner as well as more in-depth treatment for the specialist. This text is useful to both the practitioner and the researcher of the mesoscale phenomena.

Audience: Graduate-level courses and researchers in the field of atmospheric science.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
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)
From the Publisher
"...a useful reference for those interested in the theory and application of numerical models...a worthwhile addition to one's library."
-BAMS (Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society)

"I recommend this book to all those interested in mesoscale meteorological modelling."
