With significant advances in the field of atmospheric radiation and remote sensing in recent years, the need for an up-to-date treatment of radiation and cloud physics has become evident. This monograph addresses these advances, focusing on the physical principles and approximations required to develop specific subjects.
"Liou discusses thoroughly the intricate interactions involving cloud and radiation processes in the atmosphere. Radiative transfer in clouds is covered here in more depth than it has been in other books. Many references and a good index add to the value of this book." --Choice
"Published at a most welcome time. It provides a comprehensive summary of current scuentific knowledge on atmospheric radiation, devoting special attention to cloud-radiative interactions. . . . written in an easily readable form with theoretical derivations presented in a clear and logical manner. It is recommended both as a useful text book for students of atmospheric radiation and as an important reference for scientists researching such problems." --Pure and Applied Geophysics
"Makes a timely contribution to a subject that is central to current physical climate models. . . . covers a wide range of cloud interactions. . . . an admirably broad compendium of information. . . . a handy reference for re
