Climate week in Innsbruck

Lots going on in Innsbruck this week … summarized here in the goings on of Climate Week in Innsbruck

Wednesday 2nd April is a public Action Day, where the scientists from the Alpine Space – Man and Environment research focus group of the University present their research in a fun and interactive way for the public to experience. The program is available here, come along if you can!


On Thursday and Friday the 2nd-4th April the 15th Austrian Climate Day is being hosted here from the  with our work being presented by Rainer Prinz. Highlights of the program are keynote lectures from IPCC lead author Christan Huggel (11.00am on 03.04.2014) and IPCC WG1 Co-Chair Thomas Stocker (15:00pm on 04.04.2014).

And Friday evening is the Lange Nacht der Forschung where our Institute will be demonstrating weather sensors, weather forecasting and glaciological measurements in our station which is one of the 15 stations being hosted in the Bruno Sander Haus and GEIWI.

About lindsey

Environmental scientist. I am glaciologist specialising in glacier-climate interactions to better understand the climate system. The point of this is to understand how glaciated envionments might change in the future - how the glaciers will respond and what the impact on associated water resources and hazard potential will be.
