About the Authors
  • Bringing together leading researchers, this 2004 volume surveys numerous developments in the fields of atmospheric turbulence and mesoscale meteorology, with particular emphasis on the areas pioneered by Douglas K. Lilly. Numerical simulation is an increasingly important tool for improving our understanding of a wide range of atmospheric phenomena. The first part of this book looks at the development of theoretical and computational analyses of atmospheric turbulent flows, and reviews research advances in this area. Chapters in the second part look at various aspects of mesoscale weather phenomena: from the numerical forecasting of individual thunderstorms to understanding how mountains affect local weather and climate. Researchers and graduate students will find the book to be an excellent resource summarizing the development of techniques as well as current and future work in the fields of atmospheric turbulence and mesoscale meteorology.

    • A survey of the developments in the fields of atmospheric turbulence and mesoscale meteorology

    Reviews & endorsements

    Review of the hardback: 'The volume as a whole seems lovingly assembled, with careful content and consistently high-quality technical editing and printing … Doug Lilly seems to have integrated all these phenomena, processes, issues, and approaches into a uniquely broad and deep scientific outlook … the glowing tributes in this book indicate that he has also been a masterful teacher, a revered mentor, and a treasured colleague to many current leading lights on the field of meteorology. This book, a sampler of new and vital science material, rich with glimpses of the human and historical side of the field, seems a fitting tribute.' Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society

    Review of the hardback: 'In the vast body of literature on special subjects in meteorology this book serves as something like a lighthouse. … not only a valuable contribution to computational fluid dynamics and mesoscale meteorology but also to the recent history of natural sciences. The reviewer can easily agree … that researchers and graduate students will find this book to be an excellent resource summarizing the development of techniques as well as current and future work in the fields of atmospheric turbulence and mesoscale meteorology.' Meteorologische Zeitschrift
