LACAE at the Athens Science Festival 2017

Shaping our future” is the theme this year for the Athens Science Festival 2017.

For a 3rd year in a row, LACAE will participate in the Technopolis event from 29th  March to the 2nd of April 2017.  You can find us there on Wednesday – Friday from 09:00 till 14:00 and  Saturday – Sunday from 11:00 to 16:00.

The LACAE team, ‘meteorologists in action’,  has prepared spectacular experiments that will give you the chance to create a tornado into a bottle, inflate balloons without getting tired, make your own clouds and realize the greenhouse effect by using simple materials. You will also have the opportunity to become a meteorologist, forecasting the weather for the following day and of course play many Meteo-games where the winner is decided by the weather.

Visitors wondering about satellites and  earth observation, how they impact our lives and the way they shape our future, will have the chance to answer their questions and find out what the European Union through the Copernicus programme offers to the European citizens.  LACAE people, members of  CAN-HelP (Copernicus Academy Network of Hellenic Partners) will present how Copernicus satellites (Sentinels 1-6) provide free and open data and services that improve the quality of our life.

We welcome you to come interact, play, learn and get to know us!

 

LACAE co-organizes the MEDCLIVAR 2016 Conference in Athens, from 26-30 September

The Laboratory of Climatology and Atmospheric Environment(LACAE) of the National and Kapodistrian university of Athens, in collaboration with the National Observatory of Athens, the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research and the Mariolopoulos – Kanaginis Fountation for the Environmental Sciences, co-organizes the MedCLIVAR 2016 conference.
The Conference will be held from 26 to 30 September 2016 at the University of Athens, main building (PROPYLAEA-University of Athens, 30 Panepistimiou Str.), located in the Athens city centre.

It is  the fourth conference in a series organized by MedCLIVAR, following MedCLIVAR2011 (Lecce, Italy), MedCLIVAR2012 (Madrid, Spain), MedCLIVAR2014 (Ankara, Turkey).
This sequence of conferences is fundamental for the mission of MedCLIVAR which aims to promote better communication among different scientific disciplines and to develop a multidisciplinary vision of the evolution of the Mediterranean climate through studies that integrate atmospheric, marine, and terrestrial climate components at time scales ranging from paleoreconstructions to future climate scenarios.
