Multi-scale transport and exchange processes
in the atmosphere over mountains
– programme and experiment

Mountain exchange
Exchange processes govern the transfer of heat, momentum and mass between the ground, the planetary boundary layer and the free atmosphere. Over mountainous terrain, exchange processes include turbulent mixing, breeze systems, gravity wave propagation, and moist convection.

TEAMx is an international research initiative that aims at improving our understanding of atmospheric processes over mountains. TEAMx targets:

  • 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.
