  • Thermodynamics of Cloudsby Louis Doufour

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Thermodynamics of Clouds is Volume 6 of the International Geophysics Series. This volume is an attempt to be a single reference of meteorological works of thermodynamical problems in relation to surface tension and adsorption. Numerous applications of various formulas accompany the text for further understanding of the reader to the concepts featured.... more...

  • Cloud Dynamicsby Robert A. Jr. Houze; Renata Dmowska

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 93.95

    Clouds play a critical role in the Earth's climate, general atmospheric circulation, and global water balance. Clouds are essential elements in mesoscale meteorology, atmospheric chemistry, air pollution, atmosphericradiation, and weather forecasting, and thus must be understood by any student or researcher in the atmospheric sciences. Cloud Dynamics... more...

  • Microphysics of Clouds and Precipitationby H.R. Pruppacher; J.D. Klett

    Springer Netherlands 2010; US$ 115.00

    Cloud physics has achieved such a voluminous literature over the past few decades that a significant quantitative study of the entire field would prove unwieldy. This book concentrates on one major aspect: cloud microphysics, which involves the processes that lead to the formation of individual cloud and precipitation particles. Common practice has... more...

    This volume is a collection of papers presented at the 14th International Conference on Nucleation and Atmospheric Aerosols, Helsinki, 26 - 30 August 1996. The first conference of this series took place in Dublin (1955); second, Basel and Locarno (1956); third, Cambridge (1958); fourth, Frankfurt am Main and Heidelberg (1961); fifth, Clermont-Ferrand... more...

  • Storm and Cloud Dynamicsby William R. Cotton; Richard A. Anthes

    Elsevier Science 1992; US$ 72.95

    This book focuses on the dynamics of clouds and of precipitating mesoscale meteorological systems. Clouds and precipitating mesoscale systems represent some of the most important and scientifically exciting weather systems in the world. These are the systems that produce torrential rains, severe winds including downburst and tornadoes, hail, thunder... more...

  • Clouds Their Formation, Optical Properties, And Effectsby Peter Hobbs

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Clouds: Their Formation, Optical Properties, and Effects deals with the formation of clouds as well as the theoretical and experimental aspects of their microphysical and optical properties. Discussions are grouped under the headings of structure of clouds, interaction of passive radiation with clouds, and interaction of active radiation with clouds.... more...

  • Cloud Dynamicsby Robert A. Jr. Houze

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 88.95

    As models of the Earth/atmosphere system and observations become ever more sophisticated, and concerns about climate change and societal impacts of extreme weather and its forecasting grow, understanding the role of clouds in the atmosphere is increasingly vital. Cloud Dynamics, Second Edition  provides the essential information needed to understand... more...

  • Ice Microdynamicsby Pao K. Wang

    Elsevier Science 2002; US$ 84.95

    Atmospheric ice particles play crucial roles in cloud and storm dynamics, atmospheric chemistry, climatological processes, and other atmospheric processes. Ice Microdynamics introduces the elementary physics and dynamics of atmospheric ice particles in clouds; subsequent sections explain their formation from water vapor, why ice crystal shape and... more...

  • Cloud Opticsby Alexander A. Kokhanovsky

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 209.00

    Clouds affect the climate of the Earth, and they are an important factor in the weather. Therefore, their radiative properties must be understood in great detail. This book summarizes current knowledge on cloud optical properties, for example their ability to absorb, transmit, and reflect light, which depends on the clouds? geometrical and microphysical... more...
