Covers essential parts of cloud and precipitation physics and has been extensively rewritten with over 60 new illustrations and many new and up to date references. The early chapters review atmospheric thermodynamics, providing a background for a new chapter on observed cloud properties, and revised chapters on the nucleation of water droplets and ice crystals, their growth and the development of precipitation. Many current topics are covered such as mesoscale meteorology, radar cloud studies and numerical cloud modelling, and topics from the second edition, such as severe storms, precipitation processes and large scale aspects of cloud physics, have been revised. Problems are included as examples and to supplement the text.

From the Publisher:

The aim of this extensively revised and updated book is to survey, in a short volume, the essential parts of cloud and precipitation physics. The early chapters review atmospheric thermodynamics, providing a background for understanding the nucleation of water drops and ice crystals, their growth, and the development of precipitation. Topics from the second edition that are central to cloud physics, such as severe storms, have been expanded. The book introduces subjects of current interest, including cloud modeling, radar cloud studies, and mesoscale meteorology, and contains a new chapter on observed prioperties of clouds. Problems are included as examples and to supplement the text, and the book is illustrated fully throughout.
