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

34 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 1,423 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 )

16 editions published between 1989 and 1999 in English and held by 433 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 )

Aerosol pollution impact on precipitation : a scientific review by Zev Levin( Book )

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

"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."--book jacket

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 0 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
