Marine Observation

The IRBIM CNR Marine Weather Observing System consists of buoys and seamarks in the central Adriatic Sea capable of measuring numerous meteorological and marine variables in real time, with high temporal resolution. Monitoring the marine environment is an essential and multidisciplinary activity through which it is possible to learn about the health of the sea, observe anomalies, predict its evolution, and understand the consequences and impacts of human activity, including climate change. Data from CNR IRBIM’s Observing System can be freely accessed in real time, not only by the scientific community but also by citizens, through the Sections dedicated to each individual buoy.

The research activities of the Institute are carried out in the context of research, development and innovation projects, both national and international, based on regional funding programs (POR FEAMPA - Regional Operational Program of the European Maritime Affairs Fisheries Fund and Aquaculture and POR FESR - Regional Operational Program of the European Regional Development Fund) or ministerial (PRIN - Projects of relevant national interest, PNRA - National Research Program in Antarctica, PO FEAMPA - National Operational Program European Maritime Affairs Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund) , programs for European Territorial Cooperation (Interreg), direct funding programs of the European Commission (Horizon2020 and Horizon Europe, Life, JPI - Joint Programming Initiatives, ERA-NET Cofund) and thematic collaboration initiatives managed by international organizations such as, for example , the FAO - GFCM (General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean). The Institute also develops funded projects in the context of collaborations with private companies in the sectors of the blue economy as well as technology transfer and research results. Research projects, mainly of a collaborative nature, are developed through a wide network of partners that include major Italian and foreign research institutions and universities.
