"This second edition of Cloud Dynamics follows the structure of the first edition by addressing Earth's clouds holistically. Part I reviews basic principles of nomenclature, dynamics and thermodynamics of air motions, the microphysical processes of water drops and ice particles, and the physics of remote sensing of clouds and precipitation. Part II examines in depth the dynamics of each of the major types of clouds in the atmosphere. This two-part structure and the individual chapter topics within each part are the same as in the first edition of the book (although the chapter titles have been slightly altered to modernize them). The material of the first edition of this book is largely unchanged. However, the study of clouds is a vigorous research area. New satellites, more advanced models, and numerous field studies have advanced knowledge of all types of clouds, and I have integrated these new insights into the second edition"--

This volume, number 109 of the Les Houches Summer School series, presents the lectures held in August 2017 on the subject of turbulent flows in climate dynamics. Leading scientists in the fields of climate dynamics, atmosphere and ocean dynamics, geophysical fluid dynamics, physics and non-linear sciences present their views on this fast growing and interdisciplinary field of research, by venturing upon fundamental problems of atmospheric convection, clouds, large scale circulation, and predictability. Climate is controlled by turbulent flows. Turbulent motions are responsible for the bulk of the transport of energy, momentum, and water vapor in the atmosphere, which determine the distribution of temperature, winds, and precipitation on Earth. The aim of this book is to survey what is known about how turbulent flows control climate, what role they may play in climate change, and to outline where progress in this important area can be expected, given today's computational and observational capabilities. This book reviews the state-of-the-art developments in this field and provides an essential background to future studies. All chapters are written from a pedagogical perspective, making the book accessible to masters and PhD students and all researchers wishing to enter this field.
