Weather Station

The observational sites in the Lesina Lagoon are the result of a collaboration between IRBIM CNR Ancona’s Observational Technologies Group and IRBIM CNR’s Marine Ecology Group in Hvar, and include a climatological station and a meteo-lagoon station. The weather station is located on the terrace of the Institute’s headquarters about 20 meters away from the southwestern shore of the lagoon, at a height of about 18 m above the ground, and has been active since the late 1990s. The station was updated in March 2011 and produces data at 10-minute intervals. Data on wind speed and direction, air temperature, relative humidity, atmospheric pressure, precipitation and solar radiation are constantly collected.

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.
