Hydrological applications of weather radar

£39.99

Product description

This volume reflects the extensive collaboration that is developing between meteorologists and hydrologists.;Topics covered include the application of hydrological techniques when using weather radar (in particular in Western Europe); a discussion of NEXRAD, which presages a new era in hydrometeorology in the United States; the hydrological relevance of radar rainfall data; the prospects for improving weather radar calibration in real-time; the impact of radar signal quantization on rainfall-runoff models; and the use and adjustment of conventional radar reflectivity data when estimating precipitation.

The significance of radar wavelengths in the estimation of snowfall is examined, and dual polarization Doppler radar applications to radar hydrology discussed. The use of hydrometeorological models and radar data in the determination of short-term rainfall forecasting is covered, and the book culminates with a look at the combined use of weather radar and Mesoscale numerical model data for short-period rainfall forecasting.

Condition: Very good with only minor signs of shelfwear to the head and tail of the spine. There is some slight corner bumping to the boards and the foredge has minor thumb marks. The book is a ittle cocked due to being thick and heavy and resting on a shelf. The interior pages are very clean and crisp with a good tight binding.
