Amundsen-Nobile tower

28 July 2010 23:01

On the hil between the lakes Storvannet and Tvillingvannet, the Italians have build a new research infrastructure: a climate change tower. 32 meters high with many platforms for atmospheric and ground measurements. This structure will provide data for the atmospheric gradient between the surface and the air above it and fill a gap in present climate models.

On the left you can see in the background the atmospheric measurement station on the top of the Zeppelin mountain 474 meter above sea level. This is a nice example of combined measurements and research infrastructures in this village.
