Automated LIdar-CEilometer network

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. A measurement database from previous field campaigns is also provided.

This information is functional in the fields of meteorology, air quality, environmental and flight safety and for climate studies. Posted data are preliminary and their copyright belongs to the station PI.s.

For relevant information, please contact the project office at: alicenet@isac.cnr.it
