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 complexity.
About the Author
Jerry M. Straka received a Ph.D. in Meteorology from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1989. He then worked for a short time at the University of Wisconsin's Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC) in Madison before joining the University of Oklahoma in 1990 where he is an Associate Professor of Meteorology. Dr Straka's research interests include microphysical modeling, severe thunderstorm dynamics, numerical prediction, radar meteorology, and computational fluid dynamics. He is co-director of the Verifications of the Origins of Rotation in Tornadoes Experiment (VORTEX I) and a Member of the American Meteorological Society. --This text refers to the Printed Access Code edition.
