Marine and oceanographic facilities

Cnr runs some oceanographic facilities for the study of marine ecosystems and of environment. The most important are the oceanographic vessels 'Urania' and 'Dallaporta'.

Cnr operates the research vessels 'Urania' and 'Dallaporta' and several smaller vessels for investigations of the sea floor and of the physical and chemical properties of the oceans and the atmosphere, as well as some coastal and open-sea buoys for studies on physics, chemistry and biology of oceanic waters and coastal environments. This is the largest oceanographic fleet at national level.

The activity of this facilities are supported, in design phase too, by Central Management for Programming and infrastructures.
