First TEAMx Workshop

The First TEAMx Workshop is scheduled in Rovereto, Italy, on 28-30 August 2019.

The workshop is the first chance given to the mountain meteorology community to actively collaborate in the TEAMx programme development. The objectives of the workshop are:

  • To bring together experts in mountain meteorology and climatology from both the experimental and the numerical modelling communities.
  • To identify the greatest gaps in knowledge that require collaborative research in mountain- and boundary-layer meteorology and climatology, as well as in related disciplines such as air chemistry, alpine ecology, hydrology.
  • To get the users of numerical weather prediction and climate simulation products involved in planning future research in mountain meteorology.

The event is by invitation only.
