About this book

This volume examines future strategies in meteorology and climatology that involves the whole atmospheric and related communities: scientists, service providers, manufacturers and users. While the central focus is the application of meteorology for society, this volume also addresses a wide spectrum of scientific and application topics in atmospheric sciences - atmosphere and the water cycle, forecasting the weather from one day to one year ahead, climatology, and meteorology and society.
