Waves, Clouds, and Precipitation

Authors: Khouider, Boualem

Free Preview
  • Based on a multi-disciplinary approach to one of the hardest problems in climate modelling and climate change science
  • Combines physical intuition based on available observations to construct mathematical models that are easy enough to draw basic understanding on the subject and yet complex enough to capture the most important physical features, both quantitatively and qualitatively
  • Links simple theoretical models with state-of-the-art climate models
  • Uses new stochastic and deterministic methods in climate modelling

この書籍について

This book is a survey of the research work done by the author over the last 15 years, in collaboration with various eminent mathematicians and climate scientists on the subject of tropical convection and convectively coupled waves. In the areas of climate modelling and climate change science, tropical dynamics and tropical rainfall are among the biggest uncertainties of future projections. This not only puts at risk billions of human beings who populate the tropical continents but it is also of central importance for climate predictions on the global scale. This book aims to introduce the non-expert readers in mathematics and theoretical physics to this fascinating topic in order to attract interest into this difficult and exciting research  area. The general thyme revolves around the use of new deterministic and stochastic multi-cloud models for tropical convection and convectively coupled waves. It draws modelling ideas from various areas of mathematics and physics and used in conjunction with state-of-the-art satellite and in-situ observations and detailed numerical simulations.   After a review of preliminary material on tropical dynamics and moist thermodynamics, including recent discoveries based on satellite observations as well as Markov chains, the book  immerses the reader into the area of models for convection and tropical waves. It begins with basic concepts of linear stability analysis and ends with the  use of these models to improve the state-of-the-art global climate models. The book also contains a fair amount of exercises that makes it suitable as a textbook complement on the subject.
