Earth system science and environmental technologies

The Department of Earth systems science and environmental technologies conducts studies based on the observation of the Earth and on the comprehension of chemical, physical and biological processes governing our planet. In these areas, it is the fundamental reference point for Italian and European policies. The activities range from climate and atmospheric studies to research on aquatic and terrestrial systems and the comprehension of the environmental evolution even through the analysis of data and their implementation into mathematic models. The Department coordinates the National Antarctic Research Programme (PNRA) and it manages the Italian Arctic station “Dirigibile Italia” in Ny-Alesund, Svalbard Islands.
