[Met-jobs] 16-month fellowship - Politecnico di Milano

Project LAMPO (Lombardy-based Advanced Meteorology Predictions and Observations) for the development of an early warning system based on low cost ground based GNSS receivers


The project LAMPO will enable atmospheric water vapor monitoring with a spatial resolution of few kilometers and a temporal resolution of less that 1 hour. The project, which foresees the deployment of a network of low-cost GNSS receivers, will allow the development and validation of a nowcasting algorithm for convective storms, mainly based on the analysis of the observations collected by this monitoring network. LAMPO system, i.e., the network and the predictive model, tested in the hydraulic node of Milano, will represent a prototype of future implementations in other areas prone to hydrogeological instability (not only floods but also landslides due to intense rains). 


Activities that the Research Fellow will carry out: 

- Development of a nowcasting algorithm based on neural network

- Operational products development and integration with civil protection tools used by the Centro Funzionale di monitoraggio rischi naturali of Regione Lombardia 

- Technical support to the dissemination and communication activities
