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 April 22 2017, two public initiatives will take place in  Washington DC, USA: the Earth-Day and the March for Science

March 23, 2017. The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has released its updated version of the International Cloud Atlas (https://www.wmocloudatlas.org) in conjunction with the World Meteorological Day.  
The Atlas is the global reference for observing and classifying clouds and other weather phenomena. For the first time, the 2017 edition will primarily be a web-based portal, allowing for much richer content and presentation easily accessible to a vast audience.

 

The ESR network (European Skynet Radiometer network, www.euroskyrad.net) represented by Monica Campanelli (ISAC-CNR), is attending the measurement campaign PRE-TECT (http://pre-tect.space.noa.gr/stations/ ,http://pre-tect.space.noa.gr/stations/28/) with a PREDE POM01 sun-sky radiometer.

March 29, 2017. A delegation of representatives of the Ministries of Environment of Republic of Botswana and of Italy visited the Rome laboratories of the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate in the frame of an ongoing memorandum of understanding between the two ministries. At the meeting, projects ongoing at ISAC, also in collaboration with Sapienza University (Rome) in the field of early warning of hydrometeorological risky conditions were illustrated and discussed.
