- Meteorological Field Campaign about temperature inversions in Alpine basins


 

 

At the saddle (1320m) we had to make a rest. It was snowing now 10cm every hour (it was very difficult to find our chocolate in the snow after only 5 minutes!!!)

 

 

The weatherstation at the saddle. Please note, that the sensors are nearly 2m high.

In my opinion, this looks like Canada!

 

 

 

We had to search for the computer-boxes of the wind-masts of the University of Agricultural Sciences under the snow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bernhard is digging a hole in the 1.40m deep snow.

 

 

After a long time we found the computer box of the windmast. Now we had to deinstall the sensitive electronic parts. 

 

 

 

 

Benedict at the bottom of the sinkhole. In the background you can see the 2.5m hight anemoneter of our automatic weather station. The yellow-blue rod is an avalanche probe which we used to find the computer-boxes of the windmasts.

 

 

 

 

 

After two hours at Gruenloch we decided to go down. Because of the big quantity of fresh fallen snow the avalanche-situation got more and more dangerous.

 

 

 

 

 

30cm snow on our cars. After we free our cars from snow we went to the next "Wirtshaus" in order to eat a big "Schnitzel".
