Biodiversity of marine ecosystems and biogeochemical cycles, devoted to the study of: ecosystems of coastal strip and resources; mechanisms determining biodiversity; marine system tolerance of perturbation. Marine geology and morpho-bathymetry based upon the study of the morphology of the sea floor, the acoustic characteristics of the floor, and the stratigraphic and tectonic aspect of the seafloor. Pre-operation and ecological oceanography of sensorial systems aiming at a continuous forecast of the future conditions of the sea.

Mission:
The Institute’s mission is to conducts interdisciplinary research on coastal areas, with primary emphasis on Southern Italy and the Mediterranean, and aligns its research along six main scientific themes: Biodiversity and ecology of coastal, deep and polar marine systems, Sustainable use of biological resources Aquaculture, Marine Geology and Geophysics, Operational oceanography, Biogeochemistry and environmental geochemistry. Observational activities include analysis, monitoring and modelling of distribution processes of both inorganic and organic micropollutants; study and application of chemical, physical and biological remediation techniques. Results areapplied towards the development of innovative approaches and technological systems intended for the management of coastal zones, including advisory services to help policymakers, public companies, industry, and citizens to effectively manage and conserve coastal and marine resources.
