“Altitudinal dependence of meteoclimatic conditions in the Great Alpine Region”

Mountain environments are of great importance in our lives, as they cover about 25% of the Earth’s surface, and all the population on the Earth depends on them directly or indirectly. Mountain ecosystems are particularly sensitive to the impacts of climate change and are being affected at a faster rate than other environments. Thus climate change is directly affecting mountain settings, but also all those who depend on them. To shed further light on this important field, it is important to investigate and understand altitudinal dependencies of meteoclimatic conditions and the physics mechanism at base. What do we know about the Greater Alpine Region, the highest and most extensive mountain range system in Europe, where both global and local anthropic activities have a significant impact?

Anna Napoli got her Bachelor and Master Degrees in Physics in two different Universities of Milan, namely “Bicocca” and “Statale”.
In March 2022 she got her PhD in Computer Science and Systems Engineering at the University of Genoa, working with CIMA Research Foundation (Savona) at the Meteorology and Climate Department and continuing her collaboration with the University of Milano-Bicocca.
