Basic research at the Centre for Atmospheric Research covers remote sensing of atmospheric properties and atmospheric impact on the performance of satellite navigation systems.
About the center
Global climate change is becoming a major environmental concern during the last decades. Increased concentrations of greenhouse gasses and sulphate aerosols in the atmosphere alter the energy balance of the Earth surface, an important factor that initiates changes of climate. A necessity for better understanding of these processes, especially the ones related to aerosols, led to the establishment of the Centre for Atmospheric Research (CRA) at the University of Nova Gorica in 2004. Lidar measurements of aerosol transport as well as other environmental and meteorological measurements are being performed at Otlica observatory site.
