  This book explains how the parameterization or mathematical representation of complex physics is developed and used for accurate numerical predictions of cloud and precipitation. It presents full derivations of these parameterizations, and, supported by online model codes, allows researchers and students to build parameterization packages at varying levels of : $ Cloud and Precipitation Microphysics: Principles and Parameterizations by Jerry M. Straka. This book focuses specifically on bin and bulk parameterizations for the prediction of cloud and precipitation at various scales - the cloud scale, mesoscale, synoptic . Model codes are available online at Written for researchers and advanced students of cloud and precipitation microphysics, this book is also a valuable reference for all atmospheric scientists involved in models of numerical weather by: This book concentrates on one major aspect: cloud microphysics, which involves the processes that lead to the formation of individual cloud and precipitation particles. Common practice has shown that one may distinguish among the following additional major aspects: cloud dynamics, which is concerned with the physics responsible for the macroscopic.

Microphysics of Clouds and Precipitation Book Description: Cloud physics has achieved such a voluminous literature over the past few decades that a significant quantitative study of the entire field would prove unwieldy. This book concentrates on one major aspect: cloud microphysics, which involves the processes that lead to the formation of individual cloud and precipitation particles. Written for researchers and advanced students of cloud and precipitation microphysics, this book is also a valuable reference for all atmospheric scientists involved in models of numerical weather prediction. Jerry M. Straka received a Ph.D. in Meteorology from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in He then worked for a short time at the Univer-. The book provides a single source for a combination of the principles and parameterizations, where possible, of cloud and precipitation microphysics. It is not intended to be a comprehensive text on microphysical principles in the spirit of Pruppacher and Klett’s book Microphysics of Clouds and Precipitation.

Written for researchers and advanced students of cloud and precipitation microphysics, this book is also a valuable reference for all atmospheric scientists involved in models of numerical weather and Precipitation Microphysics: Principles and Brand: Professor Jerry M Straka. This book provides the most comprehensive treatment to date of the microphysical processes which lead to cloud and precipitation formation. This book concentrates on one major aspect: cloud microphysics, which involves the processes that lead to the formation of individual cloud and precipitation particles. Common practice has shown that one may distinguish among the following addi­ tional major aspects: cloud dynamics, which is concerned with the physics respon­ sible for the. Cloud Microphysics and the Hydrological Cycle. The most obvious impact of clouds on the hydrological cycle is that of precipitation. In removing water from the atmosphere, precipitation modifies cloudiness and cloud structure. Moreover, the latent heating associated with precipitation is a driving force for atmospheric circulations.
