Microphysical Processes in Clouds

Overview


This text introduces students to the processes that govern the formation of water and ice particles, and the role of these interactions in cloud development. Intended to provide a clear framework in light of current developments, the work focuses on the interactive dynamics of cloud systems rather than isolated microphysical processes. The text also provides the basis for understanding clouds in relation to global change, examining chemical reactions that take place within clouds and their role in the earth's ...

Overview


This text introduces students to the processes that govern the formation of water and ice particles, and the role of these interactions in cloud development. Intended to provide a clear framework in light of current developments, the work focuses on the interactive dynamics of cloud systems rather than isolated microphysical processes. The text also provides the basis for understanding clouds in relation to global change, examining chemical reactions that take place within clouds and their role in the earth's radiation balance. Individual chapters consider precipitation processes, cloud seeding, and cirriform clouds. Problems sets follow each chapter. Teachers and students in the fields of cloud physics and physical meteorology will welcome the publication of this outstanding introductory text.

Meet the Author

Professor Young received his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago specializing in numerical modeling of cloud microphysical processes. In cooperation with the National Hael Research experiment, he developed several models of hael formation and its modification. He has been teaching a graduate level cloud physics course at The University of Arizona since 1975.
