TOPIC: LIMET

LIMET 8 years 5 months ago #27

Greetings all,
The following is a brief presentation of Limet.
Enjoy ;)
Daniele Laiosa

LIMET is an association of volunteers born and built on the passion for meteorology and their desire to divulge the experience gathered over many years experience on observing the weather and atmospheric phenomena affecting Liguria.
Loving Meteorology for us means especially learning the environment that surrounds us on a daily basis, and sharing it with other people. We believe that promoting and divulging a certain type of environmental culture can contribute to develop a weather and climatological awareness process of any region, which is important for the present and the future of mankind.
The structure of the organization is composed of a web portal where some free services are available, such as the daily produced 3-day forecast bulletin and the editorial services (e.g. Buongiorno Liguria, Diario di Bordo, Editoriale). The latter are included to keep a wider audience up-to-date in a comprehensible way with everything that happens on the meteorological, climatological and environmental arena.
The LIMET fundamental objective is to bring the meteorological culture into people’s minds, not just through its web portal and all the services linked with it (including the forum), but more especially with activities carried out throughout the region, from the participation to thematic conferences to the organization of courses and learning methodologies open to all citizens, as well as the co-operation with schools within our region, to teach children to have a different approach towards meteorology and disastrous events.
In order to improve the forecast and educational aspects, the understanding of events and the attention of the audience, the most important LIMET project which requires the greatest effort, is the development of a network of amateur or semi-professional (when possible) observing stations and webcams or webcanons for the monitoring of weather and climate positioned across the whole of Liguria.
As of today, the LIMET network comprises 87 stations for the most important meteorological data (i.e. temperature, humidity, wind, rain and pressure) and about 30 webcams are made freely available by the owners to make sure the environmental monitoring is seen with more watchful eye, as an important matter to be divulged.
As a testimony of this, we wish to stress the great importance that our network has now gained; all the data are very easy to read and access. The day of the flooding events on 4th October 2010 which devastated Varazze, Genoa-Sestri Ponente (the stations of mount Beiga and Varazze-Casanova correctly foresaw the incoming disaster, whereas the western suburbs of Genoa were not installed yet) and the following floods that occurred on 4th November 2011 when the Genoa-Quezzi station recorded the rain without being subject to any interruption until 2 p.m. of the same day, significantly contributing to render what was happening in the Fereggiano Valley even easier to understand for the 20 thousand visitors consulting our station data during the event.
In this context, we dared asking a greater involvement from all the appropriate authorities and all the authorized personnel to ensure the ”positive force” of the country dealing with meteorology, broken up in various and different institutional authorities, could find common grounds to face the forecasting aspects in general and the impacts of atmospheric phenomena where you live in a better manner. This is why we find useful and educational giving our contribution to the DRIHM project which seem to foster sharable objectives.

Dear Limet

we are very glad to see your post on our website.

To sake of completeness, I like to provide the link to the map with your real-time stations network:

Furthermore I like to link the abstract of the joint work recently presented at the EGU Conference on the November 4th, 2011 flood event in Genoa:
