ISMAR

INSTITUTE OF MARINE SCIENCES

The Institute of Marine Sciences of the National Research Council of Italy (CNR-ISMAR) carries out advanced basic and applied research in physical, chemical and biological oceanography and in marine geology. The main objectives are to study oceanic processes and climate variability and to develop integrated multi-disciplinary systems/services for monitoring, protection and sustainable management of the marine environment from the open ocean to coastal areas.

RESEARCH

CNR-ISMAR carries out multi-disciplinary research based on observation and modelling on:

  • Physical and Biogeochemical Oceanography;
  • Marine Geology and Paleoceanography;
  • Ocean processes, Climate Variability and Ecosystems functioning and evolution;
  • Observations and Operational Services for Monitoring Essential Ocean and Climate Variables (EOVs & ECVs);
  • Marine Hazards;
  • Interoperable Data Management & Maritime Spatial Planning;
  • Outreach and Ocean Literacy.

DIRECTOR

ROSALIA SANTOLERI

Director of the Institute of Marine Sciences and Research Director of the National Research Council of Italy (CNR-ISMAR). She is a physical Oceanographer with more than 35 years of experience in ocean dynamics, physical-biological interaction, satellite oceanography, operational oceanography, climate variability, air-sea interaction. In the 1980s she bet on the potential of using satellites to monitor the marine ecosystem and started satellite oceanography activity in Italy. She has contributed with a leadership role to the European effort in the field of operational oceanography, participating in the design, development and implementation of the European Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS). She coordinated several national and international projects. President of the Italian Oceanographic Commission (COI), National body of the UNESCO-IOC.
