Mesoscale weather systems are responsible for numerous natural disasters, such as damaging winds, blizzards and flash flooding. A fundamental understanding of the underlying dynamics involved in these weather systems is essential in forecasting their occurrence. This book provides a systematic approach to this subject, and covers a more complete spectrum of mesoscale dynamics than other texts. The opening chapters introduce the basic equations governing mesoscale weather systems and their approximations. The subsequent chapters cover four major areas of mesoscale dynamics: wave dynamics, moist convection, front dynamics, and mesoscale modelling. This is an ideal book on the subject for researchers in meteorology and atmospheric science.
Reviews of the hardback: '... a readable, beautifully presented and well-balanced text that should find a place on the bookshelves of many university libraries.' Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society '... a good addition to the libraries of graduate students interested in the mesoscale.' EOS 'The book is of reference for researches in meteorology and atmospheric science. It can also serve as a textbook for graduate students containing many applicative problems and modeling projects on the atmospheric phenomena.' Professor Gheorghe Zet, Iasi Polytechnic Magazine 'Lin's book is well-suited for graduate students in meteorology and related disciplines.' Meteorologische Zeitschrift
