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.

Multiple satellites, including Europe’s Sentinels, have captured images of two large icebergs that broke away from Antarctica’s Nansen ice shelf on 7 April.

The Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate of the National Research Council coordinates the first measurement campaign in the Mediterranean for the study of pollution and climate in coastal areas. The Isac-Cnr bases of Cape Granitola, Lamezia Terme, Lecce and Civitavecchia (mobile station) and Enea basis of Lampedusa will operate simultaneously with gas and particle measurements, optical properties of the atmosphere, characterization of the marine atmospheric boundary layer and data acquisition satellite
