Meteorological Monographs Volume 56 --- Multiscale Convection-Coupled Systems in the Tropics: A Tribute to Dr. Michio Yanai
This monograph was inspired by the life and work of Professor Michio Yanai, a seminal figure and dedicated mentor in tropical meteorology. Conceived initially at the Michio Yanai Symposium held in January 2011 as “lessons” organized around the principal research areas that attracted his attention and passion, this collection represents both a lasting tribute to Professor Yanai and his legacy, and a useful reference for scientists in all stages of their careers. Included in this volume are reviews of tropical clouds and convection, equatorial waves, tropical cyclones, monsoon flows, the Madden-Julian oscillation, multiscale modeling and analyses, and the role of the Tibetan Plateau on climate, among other topics. Also included are personal reminiscences from Professor Taroh Matsuno and a biographical sketch of Professor Yanai’s life led by Professor Steven Esbensen, one of Professor Yanai’s earliest students during his forty-year career at UCLA.
