About this book

This practical text is aimed at the operational weather forecaster as a guide to interpreting patterns seen in water vapor images in terms of dynamical process taking place within the atmosphere and their relation to diagnostics available from numerical weather prediction models. In particular, it concentrates on the use of the close relationship (in dynamically active regions of the atmosphere) between water vapor imagery and the potential vorticity fields (measuring circulation dynamics) in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere.

Contents

PART I: Fundamentals 1. A dynamical view of synoptic development 2. The interpretation problem of satellite water vapor imagery PART II: Practical use of water vapor imagery and dynamical fields 3. Significant water vapor imagery features associated with synoptic dynamical structures 4.Use of water vapor imagery for assessing NWP model behavior and improving forecasts Appendices A. Radiative transfer theory and some radiation effects for the WV channels of Meteosat, GOES, and MSG B. Synthetic (pseudo) water vapor images C. PV modification technique and PV inversion to correct the initial state of the numerical model D. Glossary of acronyms
