(ANSA) – Turin, September 20 – The best ways to measure meteorological phenomena and climate changes will be at the heart of the study days that will see, from September 22 to 30, scientists from the five continents gather in Turin to attend scientific sessions and international meetings. And projects. The occasion will be the 4th Congress “Meterology of Meteorology and Climate”, hosted by the National Institute of Meteorological Research (Inrim) and at the Palazzina di Caccia di Stupinigi (Turin).
In addition to events attended by students and local authorities, experts from the UN Meteorology and Climatology Commissions (WMO, WMO and Global Climate Observing System) will plan urgent future actions and global reference initiatives. Topics will range from “classical” meteorological measurements to innovative approaches to understanding climate phenomena, including oceanic, alpine, arctic, upper-atmospheric and cave climate phenomena. The researchers will be transported, among other things, to the underground laboratory in the Bossi Caves (Cuneo), to demonstrate the renewable sensor network that Enrim has installed with the Polytechnic of Turin and the CAI.
Furthermore, the first Italian reference climate station will be inaugurated on September 28, operated by Inrem in cooperation with the Italian Meteorological Society and hosted by the Stubinigi Park. The system will contribute to the emerging global network of high-level climate stations, interconnected with each other. INRIM therefore presents itself as a center of excellence in climatology, offering unique laboratories and a network of experimental measurement sites. The site will also have a notable media significance, thanks to a new educational installation on climate, commissioned by the Municipality of Nicellino (Turin).
The series of events will witness the presence of an author from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, and members of the scientific secretariats of the United Nations climate and weather committees, the Italian climate scientist Luca Mercalli. , with national representative directors and research directors in Geneva.
