This book outlines recent advances in the theoretical study of the collection of basic physical and thermodynamic processes in the troposphere, stratosphere, and mesosphere. It focuses on the hydro-mechanical, thermodynamic, environmental, and mathematical aspects of dynamic meteorology, addressing specific physical or mathematical problems in each chapter and reviewing existing approaches to their solutions, with emphasis on the modeling of regional atmospheric processes, the numerical solution of differential equations with partial derivatives, and the theory of convective diffusion parameterization of sub-scale processes. Chapters cover the system properties of the earth-atmosphere system, the basic meteorological variables, and thermodynamic processes related to atmospheric circulation; the physical basis of the general circulation of the atmosphere, the heat and moisture cycle, the influence of local physical and geographical conditions of atmospheric air movements, and patterns of development of man-made and natural processes in the boundary layer; the basic equations of mechanics of viscous stratified fluid used in the simulation of atmospheric circulation; problems related to the modeling of atmospheric processes of various scales; the development and use of parameterization methods of sub-scale processes; and analysis of numerical methods for reproducing specific physical processes.
