From Turbulence to Climate: Numerical Investigations of the Atmosphere with a Hierarchy of Models 1st Edition

Supporting text is from the site

This volume covers aspects of numerical modeling of the atmosphere and climate from the microscales of turbulence to the very large scales associated with climate and climatic change. Each of the three major spatio-temporal scales of the atmosphere, namely, the microscale, the mesoscale, and the macroscale is addressed through a hierarchy of models. Results of model simulations are illustrated throughout the text, with many of these examples based on the author’s original research work. For each type of model discussed here, the theoretical background, including governing equation sets, simplifying assumptions, and advantages and limits of the models, is provided. An attempt is made throughout the book to highlight interdisciplinary nature of atmospheric modelling.
