This book is based largely on the information provided at a Board on Atmospheric Sciences and Climate community workshop. The book describes the needs for end user communities, focusing in particular on needs that are not being met by current urban-level forecasting and monitoring. It also describes current and emerging meteorological forecasting and monitoring capabilities that have had and will likely have the most impact on urban areas, some of which are not being utilized by the relevant end user communities.
