Human impacts on weather and climate by William R Cotton( Book )

30 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 1,405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Human Impacts on Weather and Climate will be valuable for undergraduate and graduate courses in meteorology and in earth and atmospheric science, as well as for policy makers and readers with an interest in how humans are affecting the atmosphere
Storm and cloud dynamics by William R Cotton( Book )

22 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focuses on the dynamics of clouds and of precipitating mesoscale meteorological systems. Clouds and precipitating mesoscale systems represent some of the most important and scientifically exciting weather systems in the world. These are the systems that produce torrential rains, severe winds including downburst and tornadoes, hail, thunder and lightning, and major snow storms. Forecasting such storms represents a major challenge since they are too small to be adequately resolved by conventional observing networks and numerical prediction models
Storms by William R Cotton( Book )

6 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Storm and cloud dynamics : the dynamics of clouds and precipitating mesoscale systems by William R Cotton( Book )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focuses on the dynamics of clouds and of precipitating mesoscale meteorological systems. Clouds and precipitating mesoscale systems represent some of the most important and scientifically exciting weather systems in the world. These are the systems that produce torrential rains, severe winds including downburst and tornadoes, hail, thunder and lightning, and major snow storms. Forecasting such storms represents a major challenge since they are too small to be adequately resolved by conventional observing networks and numerical prediction models. * Provides a complete treatment of clouds integrating the analysis of air motions with cloud structure, microphysics, and precipitation mechanics * Describes and explains the basic types of clouds and cloud systems that occur in the atmosphere-fog, stratus, stratocumulus, altocumulus, altostratus, cirrus, thunderstorms, tornadoes, waterspouts, orographically induced clouds, mesoscale convection complexes, hurricanes, fronts, and extratropical cyclones * Summarizes the fundamentals, both observational and theoretical, of atmospheric dynamics, thermodynamics, cloud microphysics, and radar meteorology, allowing each type of cloud to be examined in depth * Integrates the latest field observations, numerical model simulations, and theory * Supplies a theoretical treatment suitable for the advanced undergraduate or graduate level, as well as post-graduate
Aerosol pollution impact on precipitation : a scientific review by Zev Levin( Book )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Life on Earth is critically dependent upon the continuous cycling of water between oceans, continents and the atmosphere. Precipitation (including rain, snow, and hail) is the primary mechanism for transporting water from the atmosphere back to the Eartha (TM)s surface. It is also the key physical process that links aspects of climate, weather, and the global hydrological cycle. Changes in precipitation regimes and the frequency of extreme weather events, such as floods, droughts, severe ice/snow storms, monsoon fluctuations and hurricanes are of great potential importance to life on the plane

The numerical simulation of fog with the Rams@CSU cloud-resolving mesoscale forecast model by Russell J Chibe( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this study, the RAMS@CSU cloud-resolving mesoscale forecast model is run in a real-time configuration with a sophisticated microphysical package and multiple nested grids, in which the smallest grid has increased vertical resolution in the lower boundary layer. Using this configuration, two specific fog events are simulated in 3-D using initialization data with a horizontal resolution of 40 km
