520    "This is the first modern textbook devoted solely to 
       mesoscale-convective processes in the atmosphere. Such 
       processes are realized in the form of thunderstorms and 
       associated phenomena. Thunderstorms are dynamic and fast 
       evolving, and can have high societal impact. For this 
       reason it is becoming increasingly important that current 
       and future generations of atmospheric scientists have a 
       deep understanding of the dynamics, observations, and 
       prediction of these phenomena. The book presents in-depth 
       descriptions of the formation, dynamics, and qualitative 
       characteristics of convective phenomena such as supercell 
       thunderstorms and mesoscale convective systems. Although 
       the descriptions pertain largely to the extratropical 
       atmosphere, examples of related tropical phenomena are 
       given for comparison and contrast. To provide a further 
       holistic perspective, separate chapters are also included 
       on mesoscale observations and data analysis, numerical 
       modelling, and the theoretical predictability and actual 
       numerical prediction of mesoscale weather. An additional 
       chapter on interactions and feedbacks addresses ways in 
       which convective storms affect and are affected by 
       external processes, particularly on the synoptic and 
       planetary scale. This textbook provides advanced students,
       researchers and weather professionals with a modern, 
       accessible treatment of the convective processes that lie 
       within the range of the atmospheric mesoscale"--Provided
