From an environmental standpoint, mountains are fairly delicate and significant for tracking the kingdom of future health of our planet. simply via distribution of meteoclimatic and atmospheric composition tracking issues in mountain areas, coupled with modelling simulations, can we have the capacity to completely study advanced pollutant delivery mechanisms and higher comprehend approaching worldwide adjustments. The Himalayan-Karakoram diversity. For its elevation and geographic position, represents one of many excellent locations for learning long-range pollutant delivery structures on a local scale and for tracking alterations index by means of mechanisms that act on international scale via monsoon circulation.The Ev-K2-CNR committee with this ebook reached its goal of making a different chance for discussion among significant environmental scientists and specialists, highlighting the shut dating among varied subject matters with a typical underlying thread: in-depth comprehension of the environmental phenomena that are selecting the wellbeing and fitness of our planet.

Atmosphere: a scientific history of air, weather, and climate

Humans were on the mercy of climate because they first discovered to domesticate crops and lift domesticated animals. A unmarried hailstorm can wreck a crop. on the other hand, sufficient rain on the correct time combined with sunlight will ripen vegetation and create an considerable harvest. since it is an issue of lifestyles and dying, humans have attempted to appreciate climate styles all through historical past.

1 1 Introduction Angelo Guerrini, Agostino Da Polenza and Harald Egerer 1. A. Guerrini At the outset we would like to emphasize the long-term attention of the Italian National Research Council (CNR), under the direction of President Fabio Pistella, to the fields of environmental research. Many CNR institutions participate in national and international scientific research projects in remote areas with significant results, developing expertise in extreme environmental research. The Ev-K2-CNR – SHARE-Asia (Stations at High Altitude for Research on the Environment in Asia) Project is closely related to those CNR activities that contribute to global change studies.

Long data records of rainfall and aerosol concentration and types over the South Asian monsoon region are necessary to isolate the aerosol signals from other forcing agents. This will be challenging because while reasonably reliable long-term rainfall record exists for India, and other monsoon regions, the same cannot be said for aerosol data. Before the satellite era, there were simply no global aerosol data. Most aerosol data are Does aerosol weaken or strengthen the Asian monsoon? 5. Time series of GPCP rainfall (solid line), and IITM rainfall for the Central Northeast subdivision (dotted line) over the Indo-Gangetic Plain (15–25 N, 70–90 E) in May–June.

H. Egerer The United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and its Executive Director, Prof. Klaus Toepfer, have taken special positive notice of the Italian support of UNEP activities. In this regard and considering the growing attention being paid to mountain-related issues at the global level, one could say that together we could move mountains or, to put it more appropriately, we can help to protect and manage the fragile mountain ecosystems that provide so many critical environmental services to humanity.
