The TEAMx programme and applications webinar took place on Wednesday 6 May 2020. The meeting was originally scheduled as a side event of the 2020 EGU General Assembly in Vienna, namely session SMP4. Due to the cancellation of the conference, we opted for holding the TEAMx event in webinar form independently of EGU. The meeting was hosted by the Department of Atmospheric and Cryospheric Sciences of the University of Innsbruck (ACINN) on the video communication platform Zoom.
The purpose of the webinar was to introduce TEAMx to the wider community and establish links between TEAMx research in mountain meteorology and related disciplines. Each of the ten speakers presented on key issues related to mountain meteorology in their field, highlighting critical knowledge or capabilities that are currently lacking. This helped to identify cruicial atmospheric variables that need to be measured or simulated in TEAMx, and at what accuracy and resolution they would be needed to improve predictive capabilities.
