World Meteorological Day - 23 March 2017

March 23 2017 is the World Meteorological Day. This year the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) invites us to “Understanding Clouds” as a way to attract the attention of the public on these key atmospheric components (https://public.wmo.int/en/WorldMetDay2017). In our country the Italian Association of Atmospheric Sciences and Meteorology (AISAM) and the Air Force Meteorological Service in collaboration with the University of Rome “La Sapienza” and CNR organise a public event that will address the scope of the Day in its various observational (satellites, aircrafts, radars) and modelling (numerical models) aspects. CNR-ISAC will participate with a talk by Vincenzo Levizzani on “Clouds as seen from space: the meteorological satellites”.
