[Publication Date: September 2019]
On September 2nd – 6th 2019, the 35th edition of the International Conference on Alpine Meteorology (ICAM) has taken place in Riva del Garda.
ICAM is part of a conference series that is organised every two years with the aim to foster attention in the mountain meteorology field. ICAM topics focus on dynamical / air quality / ice processes and weather prediction in the European Alpine area, where the orography makes the terrain complex and land-atmosphere interactions more challenging to understand. ICAM topics are presented not only as research-based results but also as operational applications. One of ICAM aims is in fact to promote the translation of scientific knowledge into pragmatic situations, e.g. by tackling practical issues strictly related to mountain meteorology.
This edition of the conference was organized by the University of Trento, partner of the project, in collaboration with the Italian Association of Atmospheric Sciences and Meteorology (AISAM). The Department of Civil, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering of the University of Trento presented through a scientific poster a research activity carried out within the project, aimed at deepening the correlation between air quality data and meteorological data collected at the roadside.
