Bühlertal, Germany

Bühlertal is a little further south down the Rhine Valley from Eisental, on the edge of the Black Forest. It is the site for one of the AWS masts and this is Matt. Sitting in the middle of the road. With his laptop.

Eisental, Germany

COPS (Convectively and Orographically-induced Precipitation Study) is the latest field campaign, looking at convective thunderstorms over the Black Forest in Germany. We spent a week out there setting up the instruments. This church is the veiw from our apartment window in Eisental. After a particularly rainy day the sun came out just as it was setting.

Bellevue, France

At the end of ICAM we took the train from Chambéry back to Geneva airport. This was one of the changes we made. The trains here are announced by a hand written board being hung up on the platform.

Chambéry, France

The International Conference on Alpine Meteorology is hosted in Europe every other year. This year it was held in Chambéry. On an afternoon off Tor, Flea and me hired bikes and cycled along L'Avenue Vert to a lake just outside the town where we had a picnic and a swim, just before the afternoon thunderstorms kicked off.
