Summary

Mesoscale Meteorology in Mid-Latitudes presents the dynamics of mesoscale meteorological phenomena in a highly accessible student- friendly way, with mathematical treatments complimented by eye-catching photographs and illustrations. Topics include boundary layer convection, nocturnal low-level jets, air mass boundaries (e.g., drylines, gust fronts, sea breezes), deep moist convection, convection initiation, tornadoes and tornado genesis, mountain meteorology (e.g., topographic gravity waves, downslope windstorms, gap flows, wake vortices), lake-effect snow, cold-air damming, and mesoscale gravity waves. A Survey of Mesoscale Meteorology functions as a well-rounded undergraduate textbook whilst also serving as a reference for graduate students, weather forecasters, and research scientists.The book will provide a comprehensive coverage of the subject and will, in effect, be a one-stop-shop for all students taking a mesoscale meteorology course. The book includes chapters on boundary layer mesoscale phenomena, orographic phenomena, and deep convection with the coverage of deep convection and its initiation more comprehensive than can be found in any other text. The book brings together the latest developments in the field from recent mesoscale field experiments such as the Bow Echo and Mesoscale Convective Vortex Experiment (BAMEX), the Verification of the Origins of Rotation in Tornadoes Experiment (VORTEX), and the International H2O Project (IHOP)] and is richly illustrated throughout in full colour.
