Our mission is to foster a science-based, quality-assured knowledge on natural resources to envision proper conservation and management actions.
Our concern is to provide representative, transparent and defensible environmental data and analyses.
Terradata celebrates 10 years
We celebrate this occasion with a series of scientific meetings and a party. Go to the dedicated page and see the program of our activities.

TerraData contributes to FOREST EUROPE SoEF 2015 report
The report on the state of European forests (SoEF 2015) has been recently published. We contributed to chapter 2.1 (Deposition of air pollutants) and 2.3 (Defoliation).
Visit and seminar at WBEA, Alberta, Canada
Marco Ferretti has been invited to Fort Mc Murray to visit the monitoring system installed by Wood Buffalo Environmental Association (WBEA) and to give a seminar on "Long-term, large-scale monitoring of European forests: the ICP Forests experience in a changing environment".
WBEA monitors the environment of the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo in north-eastern Alberta. Its environmental monitoring work is the most integrated and intensive focus on air and terrestrial monitoring in any one area, anywhere in Canada.

4th ICP Forests Scientific Conference 2015 - "Long-term trend and effects of air pollution on forest ecosystems, their services, and sustainability"
The conference has been held in Ljubljana, Slovenia form May 19 to May 20, 2015. The main topics of the conference were:
- The temporal development (possibly with predictions) of air pollution effects on forests, including nitrogen deposition and ozone impacts, on different spatial scales;
- Temporal and spatial development of forest performance indicators, forest ecosystem services, their sustainability and interactions with climate trends;
- Integrative analyses and modeling exercises based on the above indicated data.
