About this book


A book on atmospheric convection treated in detail from different angles including the theoretical aspects of atmospheric deep convection and the weather phenomena related to convection. The problem of boundary conditions that result in severe convective weather patterns is explored within the framework of worldwide climatology and weather forecasting, including forecast verification, by means of their dynamic and thermodynamic properties. The book aims to bridge the gap between theory and its operational application both within the fields of weather forecasting and that of risk management. It addresses itself to meteorologists, physicists and weather forecasters, but will also be invaluable to PhD students attending courses on environment fluid dynamics and meteorology. Each chapter is practically self-contained and there are no propaedeutic sections that the reader needs to peruse before moving on to the more advanced ones.
