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.

On the summer issue of the open-access Copernicus journal (I.F. 5.053) the 80 pages Review: Particulate matter, air quality and climate: lessons learned and future needs. (S.Fuzzi et al., 2015) ( .PDF). Besides the first author Sandro Fuzzi, CNR-ISAC institute is represented by 3 more researchers.
The Review gathers scholars from 11 institutes spread in 7 European countries.

ISAC-Roma, together with the Research Area Tor Vergata organizes a citizen science campaign, from the 1st September until the 15th of October. The campaign is part of the European iSPEX project, proposed by the University of Leiden Netherlands) and uses small optical devices mounted on smart phones to measure the presence of aerosols in the atmosphere.

July 2015 was the highest among all July months since record keeping began
