Numerical weather prediction models play an increasingly important role in meteorology, both in short- and medium-range forecasting and global climate change studies. The most important components of any numerical weather prediction model are the subgrid-scale parameterization schemes, and the analysis and understanding of these schemes is a key aspect of numerical weather prediction. This book provides in-depth explorations of the most commonly used types of parameterization schemes that influence both short-range weather forecasts and global climate models. Several parameterizations are summarised and compared, followed by a discussion of their limitations. Review questions at the end of each chapter enable readers to monitor their understanding of the topics covered, and solutions are available to instructors at www.cambridge.org/9780521865401. This will be an essential reference for academic researchers, meteorologists, weather forecasters, and graduate students interested in numerical weather prediction and its use in weather forecasting.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"While I enthusiastically recommend Stensrud's book as a text for use in courses related to atmospheric physics and numerical modeling, I also believe that this book will quickly become the 'go-to' reference for those involved in NWP-related research and applications, as it is the most up-to-date and comprehensive reference of the disparate physical processes that are currently included in sophisticated numerical weather prediction models. I commend Stensrud's efforts in bringing all of this varied information together in writing this book." - Michael Baldwin, Bulletin of the American Meteorological SocietySee more reviews
