Short summary
The extreme temperature events, the heat and cold waves, besides to have a significant impact on human health and activities, have negative influences also on mountain ecosystems. This work provides a characterization of heat and cold waves variability and trends in high-elevation sites of Central Mediterranean area, by using the long-term temperature time series collected in Montevergine. Main results highlight a positive trend in heat waves frequency and severity in the last 40 years.
