  • Description:
    "Urban meteorology has come to require much more than observing and forecasting the weather of our cities and metropolitan areas. Scientific and technological advances of the past several decades enable us to predict a wider set of environmental parameters at finer spatial scales, for times ranging from the next hour (in nowcasting) to the next several months (for seasonal and climate predictions). As these capabilities have improved, the range of potential uses for the information has increased. Even more important, the potential value of this information has risen dramatically--provided we can deliver reliable information, in formats useful to those who can use it, within the time constraints of their decision processes. So understanding who needs the data, what data are truly useful and important to these users, and when they need it are tasks just as important to urban meteorology as producing the data from observations and predictive tools"--Foreword.
