Concordia Antarctic Station

The Italian-French station Concordia, located at Dome C on the East Antarctic plateau (75.18S, 123.38E, 3233 m above mean sea level and 110 km away from the nearest coast), is characterized by a large amount of scientific activities, ( astronomy/astrophysics, glaciology, seismology, geodesy, space weather and atmospheric physic). Several field measurements are routinely performed such as radiation, aerosol columnar and in situ measurements (load, scattering, absorption, size distribution in collaboration with the Finnish Meteorological Institute), ozone columnar content, lidar, PBL monitoring, many of them involving ISAC researchers.
