Foundation: 2000

Mission: Right from the start the IMAA research activity has been devoted to the development and the integration of satellite, airborne and ground-based “Earth Observation Technologies” with the aim of studying environmental and geophysical processes. The Institute’s activities fall within the following four axes: satellite, airborne and ground-based Earth Observation for the study of the atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere plus their interactions both for the development of meteo-climatic applications and risk prediction, prevention and mitigation; physico-chemical characterization of ground, soil and subsoil; development of advanced environmental monitoring techniques based on the integration of in-situ and remote sensing physico-chemical, biological and geological methods; integrated methodologies for energy-environmental planning and modeling as well as geospatial data management and interoperability. The strong multidisciplinary approach has facilitated the study of remarkably complex geophysical and environmental processes in an innovative way by following the COPERNICUS programme guidelines, making it possible for IMAA to find itself in a good position within the GEOSS strategy (Global Earth Observation System of Systems).

Evolution of the institution

The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.

Compared to its context

The result of the evaluation of the institution can be compared to obtain a view of the country, the region to which it belongs and the institutions of the world, placing it in their respective positions.

Ranks by Subject area

We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal
