EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Synoptic Analysis and Forecasting: An Introductory Toolkit provides the bridge between the introductory fundamentals of a meteorology course and advanced synoptic-dynamic analysis for undergraduate students. It helps students to understand the principles of weather analysis, which will complement computer forecast models. This valuable reference also imparts qualitative weather analysis and forecasting tools and techniques to non-meteorologist end users, such as emergency/disaster managers, aviation experts, and environmental health and safety experts who need to have a foundational knowledge of weather forecasting. Presents the fundamentals of weather analysis and forecasting Offers clear accessible writing aimed at students from a variety of mathematical backgrounds Discusses the reading and interpretation of surface observations and METAR code, processes associated with the motion and intensity of cyclones and anticyclones, and quantitative and/or qualitative diagnosis of processes associated with ascent and descent

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The past decade has been characterized by remarkable advances in meteorological observation, computing techniques, and data-visualization technology. However, the benefit of these advances can only be fully realized with the introduction of a systematic, applied approach to meteorological education that allows well-established theoretical concepts to be applied to modernized observational and numerical datasets. Designed for use with the companion textbook, Midlatitude Synoptic Meteorology, this CD-rom takes just such an educational approach, reinforcing lessons on synoptic-dynamic meteorology, synoptically-driven mesoscale phenomena, numerical weather prediction, ensemble prediction, and more. The PowerPoint slides and additional resources on the CD will help form the basis of lectures and classroom work. The textbook, lecture slides, and lab manual were developed to be used in concert, with topics considered in an order that reinforces and builds upon new knowledge in meteorological observation and forecasting, week to week.

Publisher:
Release Date: 1971
Pages: 342
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

A practical manual for training and reference use of USAF weather forecasters who will work in the tropics, it covers basic facts of climatology, circulation, synoptic models, analysis and forecasting, application throughout the tropics. A broad survey is made of the literature, evaluated in light of the experience of the author. Physical factors controlling tropical circulations are briefly discussed. The data sources for synoptic purposes are reviewed. Climatology of pressure, winds, temperature, humidity, clouds, rainfall and disturbances is presented in a form specially suitable for forecasters. Analysis and for forecasting of disturbances, cyclones, severe weather, terminal weather, etc., are treated at length. Emphasis is placed on uses of climatology and satellite cloud photos. Over 230 figures adapted from the literature or prepared by the author serve to illustrate all the essential facts and principles discussed. A summary of the state of art and future outlook of tropical meteorology is included.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This practical text is aimed at the operational weather forecaster as a guide to interpreting patterns seen in water vapor images in terms of dynamical process taking place within the atmosphere and their relation to diagnostics available from numerical weather prediction models. In particular, it concentrates on the use of the close relationship (in dynamically active regions of the atmosphere) between water vapor imagery and the potential vorticity fields (measuring circulation dynamics) in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere. * Shows how to analyze current satellite images in accordance with weather behavior models * Provides step-by-step pedagogy for understanding and interpreting meteorological features * Includes full-color throughout to highlight models, patterns, and features

Isentropic Analysis And Interpretation  Operational Applications To Synoptic And Mesoscale Forecast Problems  Revision

Release Date: 1989
Pages: 93
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

A basic review of the isentropic coordinate system, including its advantages and disadvantages for operational use. The primitive equations in isentropic coordinate form are discussed with emphasis on their physical meaning and interpretation. Isentropic analysis techniques for horizontal and cross sectional perspectives are described as aids for diagnostic analysis of synoptic scale weather systems. Numerous diagnostic variables are discussed; all can be excellent tools in identifying synoptic scale features helpful in forecasting cyclogenesis and regions susceptible to strong convection. The final section presents specialized applications of isentropic susceptible to strong convection. The final section presents specialized applications of isentropic techniques to weather analysis and forecasting, including: trajectory analysis, tropopause folding process, short-term forecasting of severe weather threat areas, and aviation forecasting. Keywords: Meteorology, Weather forecasting, Aviation forecasting, Weather analysis, Isentropic analysis, Isentropic coordinate system, Constant pressure analysis, Trajectory analysis, Tropopause folding process, Psi charts, Sigma charts, Thermal wind, Static stability, Vorticity, Condensation pressure, Condensation ratio, Condensation difference, Streamlines, Trajectories, Freezing level, Icing, Clear air turbulence, Overrunning convection.
