ALICEnet is a network of operational stations run by Italian research institutions and environmental
agencies aimed at improving the multi-disciplinary use of environmental data.
ALICEnet provides a near-real time atmospheric profiling made by five automated lidar-ceilometers (ALC)
located across Italy. A measurement database from previous field campaigns is also provided (yellow ALC
ALC profiling allows retrieving the following information:
- Mixing layer height (pollutants dispersion height);
- Time-altitude distribution of particulate matter;
- Presence and concentration of Saharan/fires/volcanic plumes;
- Cloud height;
- Fog level.
This information is functional in the fields of meteorology, air quality, environmental and flight
safety and for climate studies.
