MAP project description

Mesoscale Alpine Programme


The Mesoscale Alpine Programme (MAP), the first WWRP Research and Development Project (RDP), is an international research initiative devoted to the study of atmospheric and hydrological processes over mountainous terrain. It aims towards expanding our knowledge of weather and climate over complex topography, and thereby to improve current forecasting capabilities. A large-scale field phase in the Alpine region took place from 7 September to 15 November 1999.
