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