Multi-scale transport and exchange processes in the atmosphere over mountains – programme and experiment
Atmospheric processes specific to mountainous regions heavily affect the exchange of momentum, heat and mass between the Earth’s surface and the atmosphere. TEAMx is an international research programme that aims at improving our understanding of these processes.
The TEAMx concept is concisely summarised in an executive summary, while a detailed description of the scientific objectives of the programme is given in its white paper.
Numerical models and observational systems optimized for application over mountainous terrain.
Improved weather forecasts and climate change scenarios over mountains.
Accurate characterization of the global cycles of water, energy and trace gases.
TEAMx is endorsed by the Global Energy and Water Exchanges (GEWEX) project, part of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), as a Crosscutting project within the GEWEX Hydroclimatology Panel (GHP).
