Introduction
Alessio Golzio currently works at the Department Physics, University of Turin. Alessio does research in Paleoclimatology, Climatology, Meteorology, Boundary-Layer Meteorology and Glaciology. His interests are related to weather numerical modelling and measuerements of the lower layer of the atmosphere in complex terrain, such as Alpine valleys, and over Alpine glaciers.

Article
The Mini-EUSO telescope was launched for the International Space Station on August 22nd, 2019 to observe from the ISS orbit (∼400 km altitude) various phenomena occurring in the Earth’s atmosphere through a UV-transparent window located in the Russian Zvezda Module. Mini-EUSO is based on a set of two Fresnel lenses of 25 cm diameter each and a foca...

Atmospheric circulation over mountainous regions is more complex than over flat terrain due to the interaction of flows on various scales: synoptic-scale flows, thermally-driven mesoscale winds and turbulent fluxes. In order to faithfully reconstruct the circulation affecting the dispersion and deposition of pollutants in mountainous areas, meteoro...

Mini-EUSO is a small orbital telescope with a field of view of $44^{\circ}\times 44^{\circ}$, observing the night-time Earth mostly in 320-420 nm band. Its time resolution spanning from microseconds (triggered) to milliseconds (untriggered) and more than $300\times 300$ km of the ground covered, already allowed it to register thousands of meteors....
Preprint
Mini-EUSO is a telescope launched on board the International Space Station in 2019 and currently located in the Russian section of the station. Main scientific objectives of the mission are the search for nuclearites and Strange Quark Matter, the study of atmospheric phenomena such as Transient Luminous Events, meteors and meteoroids, the observati...

The JEM-EUSO (Joint Experiment Missions for Extreme Universe Space Observatory) program aims at the realization of the ultra-high energy cosmic ray (UHECR) observation using wide field of view fluorescence detectors in orbit. Ultra-violet (UV) light emission from the atmosphere such as airglow and anthropogenic light on the Earth's surface are the...

Mini-EUSO is a mission of the JEM-EUSO program flying onboard the International Space Station since August 2019. Since the first data acquisition in October 2019, more than 35 sessions have been performed for a total of 52 hours of observations. The detector has been observing Earth at night-time in the UV range and detected a wide variety of trans...

The TurLab facility is a laboratory, equipped with a 5 m diameter and 1 m depth rotating tank, located in the fourth basement level of the Physics Department of the University of Turin. In the past years, we have used the facility to perform experiments related to the observations of Extreme Energy Cosmic Rays (EECRs) from space using the fluoresce...

Mini-EUSO is the first mission of the JEM-EUSO program located on the International Space Station. One of the main goals of the mission is to provide valuable scientific data in view of future large missions devoted to study Ultra-High Energy Cosmic Rays (UHECRs) from space by exploiting the fluorescence emission generated by Extensive Air Showers...

Mini-EUSO is the first detector of the JEM-EUSO program deployed on the ISS. It is a wide field of view telescope currently operating from a nadir-facing UV-transparent window on the ISS. It is based on an array of MAPMTs working in photon counting mode with a 2.5 $\mu$s time resolution. Among the different scientific objectives it searches for lig...
Article
The Tracking Ultraviolet Setup (TUS) was the first orbital detector aimed to check the possibility of recording ultra-high energy cosmic rays (UHECRs) at E≳100 EeV by measuring the fluorescence signal of extensive air showers in the atmosphere. TUS was an experiment funded by the Russian Space Agency ROSCOSMOS, and it operated as a part of the scie...
Article
Full-text available
Weather forecasts over mountainous terrain are challenging due to the complex topography that is necessarily smoothed by actual local-area models. As complex mountainous territories represent 20% of the Earth’s surface, accurate forecasts and the numerical resolution of the interaction between the surface and the atmospheric boundary layer are cruc...

Le zone di alta montagna sono un laboratorio atmosferico molto interessante, poiché permettono di studiare le più complesse interazioni tra superficie terrestre e atmosfera. In queste aree si ha una diversità di terreni ineguagliabile e la complessità orografica lascia ampio campo a studi micrometeorologici. Le attuali descrizioni della dinamica at...

Mountain landscapes are characterised by a very variable environment under different points of view (topography, geology, meteorological conditions), and they are frequently affected by mass wasting processes. A debris flow that occurred along the Croso stream, located in the Italian Lepontine Alps in the Northern Ossola Valley, during summer 2019,...

The measurement of turbulent fluxes in the atmospheric boundary layer is usually performed using fast anemometers and the Eddy Covariance technique. This method has been applied here and investigated in a complex mountainous terrain. A field campaign has recently been conducted at Alpe Veglia (the Central-Western Italian Alps, 1746 m a.s.l.) where...

The Alpine environment is rapidly changing under the current climate change. Fast modifications affect landscapeevolution, surface processes and the ecological component, and involve as well human activities. The dynamics ofthe biological component, especially in the most sensitive areas as glacier forelands, are strictly related to weatherconditio...

Weather forecasts over mountainous terrain are challenging, for the complexities of topography that is necessarily smoothed by actual local area models. Furthermore, complex terrain areas are very diffuse all around the world, especially in mountain chains as the European Alps. So accurate high-resolution forecasts, numerically resolving the intera...

Mountain areas are characterized by geomorphic processes, especially mass wasting and snow avalanches, which may impact the landscape affecting also the biological component, trees included. If sites colonized by trees are characterized by geomorphic features with a high Global and Scientific Value, including Representativeness of geomorphological...

Mountain environments are extremely influenced by climate change but are also often affected by the lack of long and high-quality meteorological data, especially in glaciated areas, which limits the ability to investigate the acting processes at local scale. For this reason, we checked a method to reconstruct high-resolution spatial distribution an...

The Ciardoney Glacier (southern side of Gran Paradiso range, Piedmont, Italy) has been continuously monitored though frontal variations measurements since 1986 and mass balance since 1992. As other alpine glaciers it is rapidly retreating: its front retired by 430 m in 1971-2016 period, and mass losses increased from -103 m/yr w.e. in 1992-2002 to...
