International Symposium on CLIMATE CHANGE IN HIGH MOUNTAIN REGIONS From understanding of the past towards modelling of the future

29. August to 1 September 2011

High mountain regions around the world are known to react especially sensitive on climate change. Be‐ side the general interest in the climate of mountain regions its understanding is essential for climate impacts as e.g. changes of glaciers and permafrost and related geo‐risks.   

Although climate research gained much success within the last years in under‐ standing of high mountains climate, the complex geographical structure of mountain regions, how‐ ever, still limits their climatological understanding and consequently their modelling. Recent efforts provided in particular high quality observational data and regional modelling runs which are, how‐ ever, limited in their modelling success.

The conference aims to bring together climatolo‐ gist around the world with focus on high mountain regions both to describe the status of research and to formulate important issues for the near future.

CIRCLE-2 MOUNT projects will be presented.

Venue: Salzburg, Austria
