This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Fundamentals of Hydrometeorology examines the dynamic processes of water moving into and out of the atmosphere and subsequently offers a critical understanding of the atmospheric processes that produce significant precipitation. It presents not only foundational research on these processes, but also the tools and methods for monitoring, observing, and interpreting them. Precipitation extremes continue to grow in scope and frequency from local to global scales. Fundamentals of Hydrometeorology addresses the complexities of key water/atmosphere dynamics, beginning with factors that drive atmospheric water vapor into the atmosphere via evaporation and evapotranspiration. It also discusses water vapor transport in the atmosphere and critical topics in precipitation dynamics, including frozen, liquid, and mixed-phase processes. The book is also key to applying these concepts to real-world problems, including lack of precipitation and drought processes as well as large-scale dynamical patterns impacting excessive precipitation. Presents real-world cases to enhance fundamental knowledge of dynamic processes that can be applied to practical problems Offers insights into interdisciplinary topics that go beyond traditional hydrometeorology but are critical to understanding the local-to-global processes that drive hydrometeorological events Includes multiple animations of radar and satellite features associated with water vapor and precipitation Provides an advanced understanding of new technologies and their applications to monitoring, observing, and interpreting hydrometeorological processes
