ALPEX project descriptionAlpine Experiment
The last major field program of the Global Atmospheric Research Programme (GARP), the Alpine Experiment (ALPEX), addressed the problem of airflow over and around mountains and how the resultant features of such airflow affect the global, regional, and local weather. As with earlier GARP projects, it had been planned by a number of international groups established jointly by the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). Twenty-nine nations participated in ALPEX.
