weather radar came into existence during the Second World War when aircraft detection radars had their vision limited by echoes from rain bearing clouds. What was often considered to be of nuisance value by the air force personnel trying to locate enemy aircraft was seen as an opportunity by the weather men. Thus adversity in one field was converted into an opportunity in another. Since then weather radar has found myriad applications with the increased sophistication of technology and processing systems. It has now become an indispensable tool for the operational forecasters, cloud physicists and atmospheric scientists. The current generation radar is but a distant echo of the radars of the 1940s. As a result, its operation and maintenance have become very complex, like the technology it uses. Therefore, there is a definite requirement of focussing our special attention not only on the science of radar meteorology but also on its operational aspects. The present book, as pointed out by the author, attempts to fill this gap. The author has presented the subject with a balanced blend of science, technology and practice. The canvas is indeed very broad. Starting with the history of weather radar development the book goes on to discuss in a lucid style the physics of the atmosphere related to radar observation, radar technology, echo interpretation, different applications and finally attempts to look into the future to indicate potential new opportunities in this field. 1. Radar Meterology - History, Principles and Technology 2. Propagation, Scattering and Attenuation of Microwaves in the Lower Atmosphere 3. Weather Radar Signal Processing and Display 4. Phenomena Observed by Weather Radar 5. Operational Weather Radar 6. Radar Observation of Weather Systems 7. Estimation of Precipitation 8. Radar Observation of Tropical Cyclones 9. Use of Weather Radar in Aviation 10. Observations With "Clear Air" Radars 11. Special Applications, New Radars and the Future.

This book is specially written for oceanographers, students, and seasoned researchers alike to reveal the huge benefits in learning the ocean from space. Satellite is able to monitor many ocean phenomena (eddies, ocean fronts, upwelling, phytoplankton blooms, ocean surface wave, wind over the sea, ENSO, sea ice distribution, tsunami, etc) and measure their related variables. The combination of satellite oceanography and ocean models for operational tasks also described in this book.

by Shona Mackie
Katharine Cashman
Hugo Ricketts
READ NOW

The spreaded volcanic ash are well-known endanger to aviation, health, and agriculture sectors. Deeply observing the volcanic ash is a significant way to reduce the risk. This textbook describes measurement of eruption, remote sensing of ash, observing the ash from space, tracking and forecasting the volcanic ash, and so on. A whole material of the book are systematically arranged to give a brief understanding about volcanic ash observation.
