"While I enthusiastically recommend Stensrud's book as a text for use in courses related to atmospheric physics and numerical modeling, I also believe that this book will quickly become the 'go-to' reference for those involved in NWP-related research and applications, as it is the most up-to-date and comprehensive reference of the disparate physical processes that are currently included in sophisticated numerical weather prediction models. I commend Stensrud's efforts in bringing all of this varied information together in writing this book." - Michael Baldwin, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society
"This is the first book to provide in-depth explorations of the most commonly used types of parameterization schemes that influence both short-range weather forecasts and global climate models." -Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society
This book provides in-depth explorations of the most commonly used types of parameterization schemes. It summarises and compares several parameterizations. This will be an essential reference for academic researchers, meteorologists, weather forecasters, and graduate students interested in numerical weather prediction and its use in weather forecasting.
