The Italian Association of Agrometeorology (AIAM) was founded in 1997 by a grup of enthusiasts, now has more than a hundred of active members and houses a number of researchers and technicians from different origins (universities, research institutions, public service).
The fascination of our discipline lies in the vastness of an approach which has its “roots” in Atmospheric Physics, in Biology and in Agronomy, as well as the ability to establish original connections between them, giving answers to specific problems. Agrometeorology is therefore a real “boundary science”, designed to enhance the links between all these lines of research that focus their attention on agricultural and forest ecosystems.
The Association has the following purposes and objectives:
The AIAM adheres to the Italian Association of the Scientific Agricultural Society (AISSA) and the European Meteorological Society (EMS).
