Storm and cloud dynamics by William R Cotton ( )
36 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in English and held by 1,464 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
Human impacts on weather and climate by William R Cotton ( Book )
28 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 1,440 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
Aerosol pollution impact on precipitation a scientific review by Zev Levin ( )
17 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 426 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 planet. One of the factors that could contribute to precipitation modification is aerosol pollution from various sources such as urban air pollution and biomass burning. Natural and anthropogenic changes in atmospheric aerosols might have important implications for precipitation by influencing the hydrological cycle, which in turn could feed back to climate changes. From an Earth Science perspective, a key question is how changes expected in climate will translate into changes in the hydrological cycle, and what trends may be expected in the future. We require a much better understanding and hence predictive capability of the moisture and energy storages and exchanges among the Eartha (TM)s atmosphere, oceans, continents and biological systems. This book is a review of our knowledge of the relationship between aerosols and precipitation reaching the Earth's surface and it includes a list of recommendations that could help to advance our knowledge in this area

The numerical simulation of fog with the RAMS@CSU cloud-resolving mesoscale forecast model by Russell J Chibe ( )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries 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

Thrust faulting as a vehicle for strain release in California's Transverse Ranges : final report by William R Cotton ( Book )
1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Clouds - Their Prediction and Simulation ( )
4 editions published between 1991 and 1995 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mesoscale forecasts of several FIRE II cirrus events has been repeated using newly developed microphysics schemes. Boundary layer cloud fractional coverage schemes has been tested for one of the FIRE I stratocumulus cases in which there was a transition from solid stratocumulus to broken cumuli. RAMS ability to simulate ordinary deep convective clouds has been evaluated for one of the CaPE case over the Kennedy Space Flight Center. New modules for cloud microphysics and radiation transfer have been written and the impacts of those schemes on cloud forecasting will be evaluated in the future
