Adverse Meteorological Phenomena in Northeast Brazil

This book contains information about the physical processes of the formation and forecasting of adverse meteorological phenomena in the tropical region. This information includes, firstly, the theorical foundations of physical processes, and secondly, a guide to short-range weather forecasting. Moreover, the book presents practical methods of short-term weather forecasting in Northeast Brazil, using synoptic and thermodynamic analysis, satellite data and numerical models.

This book can be used for: student education, for undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate students of meteorology; operational weather forecasting in the tropical region by professionals in meteorology, such as professors, researchers, and operational meteorologists; verification of forecasting methods for other tropical regions; and development of automatic methods for short-term weather forecasting of such phenomena as heavy and light rain, thunderstorms, low visibility, haze, and fog.
