ALICEnet is a cooperative network of operational (24/7) automated lidar-ceilometers (ALC) and Polarization-sensitive ALC (PLC), established and coordinated by CNR-ISAC and run in collaboration with other Italian research institutions, universities and environmental agencies. It aims at providing near real-time information on aerosol profiles and at promoting the multi-disciplinary use of environmental data. Main fields of application are meteorology, air quality, environmental and flight safety, solar energy, radiation/climate.
