Atmospheric Observatory for air pollution of the Joint Research Centre

To monitor climate and health, sophisticated optical and physical characterization of aerosols is carried out. The Observatory data are used as benchmark to understand changing emission patterns and provide valuable information on greenhouse gasses from the Po Valley, as measured from a 100-m tower, to the International Carbon Observation System.
