Authors: Li, Xiaofan, Gao, Shouting
Updated and revised second edition
Includes five new chapters on convective-stratiform rainfall, budget-derived rainfall separation schemes, effects of doubled carbon dioxide on rainfall, modeling of Wegener- Bergeron-Findeisen process and precipitation predictability
Contains more than a hundred detailed illustrations about cloud-resolving modeling of convective processes
Comprehensive information on many research aspects related to convective development

This is an updated and revised second edition of the book presenting new developments in the field of cloud-resolving modeling. The first edition of the book introduces the framework of cloud-resolving model, methodologies for analysis of modeling outputs, and validation of simulations with observations. It details important scientific findings in the aspects of surface rainfall processes, precipitation efficiency, dynamic and thermodynamic processes associated with tropical convection, diurnal variations, radiative and cloud microphysical processes associated with development of cloud clusters, air-sea coupling on convective scales, climate equilibrium states, and remote sensing applications. In additional to the content from the first edition of the book, the second edition of the book contains the new scientific results in the development of convective-stratiform rainfall separation scheme, the analysis of structures of precipitation systems, the thermal effects of doubled carbon dioxide on rainfall, precipitation predictability, and modeling depositional growth of ice crystal. The book will be beneficial both to graduate students and to researchers who do cloud, mesoscale and global modeling.
