About us in brief ...

The Satellite Meteorology Group of CNR-ISAC in Bologna started its activities back in 1995 and was founded by Dr. Vincenzo Levizzani.


The science focus of the group is satellite observations of clouds and precipitation using passive and active sensors.


In particular, the following are the main research areas:

  1. Satellite rainfall and snowfall estimation
  2. Clouds and rainfall climatology
  3. Cloud parameter retrievals
  4. Severe storms structure
  5. Quantification of the role of precipitation in the global water cycle.
  6. Extreme weather events in the Mediterranean basin
