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.
