Aerobiological territorial Mediterranean-oriental system network


ATMOSnet’s main goal was to promote cooperation in monitoring and research linked to the forecasting of droughts and desertification due to climate change in the Eastern Mediterranean area. A transnational network on long-term aerobiological (pollen concentration) monitoring was set up, with monitoring pilot sites being installed and/or upgraded in five municipalities and universities in Greece, Malta and South Italy. Two pollen traps were installed in Malta and Gozo: one at Fort St Lucian in Birzebbugia and the other at the Ġordan lighthouse in Gozo, and daily sampling of airborne particles was carried out over the span of a year. Data provided by these samples was later analysed by specifically developed software with the aim of modelling and forecasting the climate change phenomena of drought and desertification and their impacts on agriculture and health.

Further information is available at the project website or by contacting the Division of Rural Sciences and Food Systems.
