The interdisciplinary approach of SHARE Project in the study of high altitude environments
On March 2, Dr. Gianni Tartari, Chair of the CEOP-High Elevations Working Group on behalf of Ev-K2-CNR, has held a seminar regarding the “Study of high altitude environments as sensors of climatic change. The interdisciplinary approach in Sagarmatha National Park, Himalayas, Nepal” at the Graduate School of Life and Environmental Science of the University of Tsukuba.
The lecture was attended by a large number of students and professors, who has shown a great interest for the discussed issues.
After the Seminar, Dr. Tartari, Prof. Koike (Chair of CEOP), Prof. Ueno (Scientific Coordinator of CEOP-HE Steering Committee) have discussed about future HE activities and progress results on the analyses of long term pre-monsoon precipitations in Nepal submitted by DHM and on TRMM model calibration in the Khumbu Valley, underlying the importance of data collection for the development of dedicated models for the analysis of Water and Energy Cycles in high elevations areas.
On March 4, Dr. Tartari met Dr. Teppei Yasunari (Research Institute for Humanity and Nature) and Dr. Madan Lal Shrestha (Nepal Academy of Science and Technology) at the Research Institute for Humanity and Nature in Kyoto to discuss about the ongoing activities in the framework of JAMEX Project and about the possible contribution to the Project of the continuous measurements of aerosol, trace gases and meteorological parameters carried out at Pyramid site.
After the meeting Dr. Tartari held a seminar about "The interdisciplinary approach of SHARE Project in the study of high altitude environments" to focus the attention on the activities carried out in the framework of Ev-K2-CNR/SHARE Project and to provide a general overview of the results achieved up to now.
