35th International Conference on Alpine Meteorology

2 - 6 September 2019 | Riva del Garda, Italy


The 35th International Conference on Alpine Meteorology (ICAM) will take place from 2 to 6 September 2019 in Riva del Garda (Italy).

Riva is a renowned touristic destination on the shores of Lake Garda, one of the most beautiful lakes in the Italian Alps.

The conference welcomes contributions on all aspects of mountain meteorology and climatology:
- Dynamics of dry and moist orographically forced airflow
- Boundary layer processes over complex terrain
- Orographic clouds and precipitation
- Recent and future field campaigns
- Challenges in weather forecasting in mountainous areas
- Numerical weather prediction over complex terrain (incl. data assimilation and predictability studies)
- Mountain climates and impacts of climate change
- Meteorological processes affecting air quality, water resources, renewable energy harvesting, ecosystems, urban environment, infrastructures.

The conference is jointly organised by the Italian Association of Atmospheric Sciences and Meteorology (AISAM) and the University of Trento.
