The Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate (CNR-ISAC) aims at an integrated scientific understanding of the atmosphere, the ocean and their processes, by means of a multidisciplinary approach which combines scientific and technological skills in meteorology, climate, atmospheric dynamics and composition, Earth observations; it develops basic research, theoretical, experimental and numerical, and modeling work together with impact evaluation.
ISAC is the largest CNR Institute on atmospheric sciences, structured in 7 Units over the country, 7 permanent observatories, including 2 Global Stations of the Global Atmosphere Watch (GAW) program of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and 2 atmospheric research Supersites.
ISAC is recognised internationally through its collaboration with a large number of European laboratories, and research centers worldwide.

EYCH2018

2018 is the first European Year of Cultural Heritage (EU Decision 2017/864). The European initiative, born under the Italian Presidency, aims to raise awareness of the importance of European history and values and strengthen the sense of European identity, drawing attention to opportunities related to cultural heritage, but also to challenges, as environmental pressures on the landscape and on cultural heritage sites.
