The Mediterranean Center for Environmental Studies (CEAM)  is a centre of research, development and technological innovation to improve the natural environment in the Mediterranean.

Our activity centres on offering comprehensive proposals for environmental management in the domain of the atmosphere, ecosystems, human activities and their interactions. This requires the participation of multidisciplinary teams who have accurate knowledge to describe and understand natural processes and those amended by human activities for the purpose of developing and offering sustainable management options that adapt to Mediterranean conditions. 

  

Our scientific and technical team includes experts in meteorology and climate, atmospheric chemistry and atmospheric pollutants dynamics, numerical simulation, high-precision analytical instruments for laboratory and field use, the carbon cycle, ecosystems dynamics, fire ecology and forest restoration. 

During more than 20 years of research, this team has applied its knowledge and experiences to forecast extreme meteorological events (heat waves, torrential rain), to mitigate and adapt to climate change, to prevent forest fires and to recover burnt or desertified mountains, and to analyse and assess atmospheric pollution in urban, rural and industrial environments, and its impacts. We have carried out these activities directly or in collaboration with leading international environmental research centres and we have applied them throughout the Mediterranean

Such activity is performed through research projects, which are included in three research programmes

·                     METEOROLOGY AND ATMOSPHERIC POLLUTION

·                     AIR POLLUTANT EFFECTS AND THE CARBON CYCLE

·                     FOREST RESEARCH

CEAM’s activities range from basic research, into finding solutions for priority environmental problems, to the development of new technologies and applications, which are set up as pilot projects where the advances made on the management scale are demonstrated. Basically, therefore, these activities are of the essentially pre-competitive R&D kind. 

R&D activity also leads to scientific counselling tasks in the themes that CEAM’s competences cover, and it specifically contributes to environmental management policymaking at various levels, from the local level to that of the European Union.
