Abstract

Preliminary analysis of snow features in the central Apennines (Italy) during the last twenty-five years. Because of the numerous complexities involved in measuring snow depth in middle and high-mountain environments, such as altitude, topography exposition, variability on direction and intensity of winds, and other local factors, a global synthesis of such as campaign is not a simple matter. This characterization is even more difficult in the chain of the Apennines, that show absolutely specific geographic and climatic features, extending from north to south at latitudes between 38 e 45 degrees, between two different marine basins, characterized of their completely different by breadth and depth. The Corpo Forestale delo Stato - Servizio Meteomont runs for about 30 years, a very extensive network of weather stations manual-type snow gauge. Aim of this study is to characterize the snow climatology in the central sector of the chain - characterized by the presence of the largest and high massifs (Gran Sasso, Maiella, Sibillini, Laga) - or we also extend the glacier and morainedammed lake southernmost of Europe.Nivometric seasonal trends remark many surprising and interesting signals, especially if proposed as indicators on the evolution on the environment of the Mediterranean mountain
