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.

Memex  interviews available

The four Rai School episodes of MEMEX dedicated to climate are now available: inside, the links to the four episodes led by Federico Fierli, climatologist of the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate of the National Research Council, with other CNR colleagues as guest.

On RAI Scuola (DT channel 146 and Sky channel 806) from 7 to 11 March: a focus on climate dedicated to climate changes and their impact on the environment and human health, from global warming to pollution. Federico Fierli (CNR-ISAC) leads the broadcasts, with colleagues Stefano Decesari (8 March) and Susanna Corti (March 9) as guests.

An international team of researchers including Dr Alessandra S. Lanotte, Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate, Professors Roberto Benzi and Luca Biferale, from University of Rome Tor Vergata, together with Professor Federico Toschi from Technical University of Eindhoven and Dr. Shiva K. Malapaka from IIIT Bangalore, has found that turbulent flows might eventually loose their wild and intermittent character, when they are confined on a fractal.
