To study the impact of climate change on ecosystem functioning and services, and regional circulation and precipitation patterns, the continuously operated backbone infrastructure of the TERENO-preAlpine observatory includes ecosystem-atmosphere flux stations along an elevation gradient, micrometeorology and boundary layer sounding systems, and a hydrometeorological mesoscale network with precipitation-gauge transects and a rain radar (Fig.
