Research Activity
My research activity follows two different paths. The first one concerns the radar meteorology field and is mainly focused on the use of X-band measurements for meteorological applications. More specifically, in recent years, with the support of the University of Naples "Parthenope" and in cooperation with the Centre of Excellence in Telesensing of Environment and Model Prediction of Severe Events (CETEMPS, University of l'Aquila), the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate (CNR-ISAC) and the Civil Protection Department (Rome), I designed radar-products for hail and lightning detection and for retrieval of snowfall rate estimates in Southern Italy (Campania Region). The second research path involves the reconstruction of past climate variability in Apennine mountains. In this respect, I managed the entire data rescue process (from digitization to quality control) of the sub-daily multi-parametric climatological time series collected in Montevergine (southern Apennine) from 1884 to 1963 (
