Snow related projects deepen knowledge about winter meteorology events which generate avalanches, to understand the effects of winter climates and local winter meteorology on the dynamics of avalanches on an Andorran scale, as well as new procedures, tools and technologies we have to characterize it.
Investigation to improve weather forecasting tools in areas of complex terrain, to increase knowledge about the atmosphere´s on the Principality of Andorra and, in general, on the Pyrenees.
Climate characterization through indicators to represent the state or tendencies of environmental conditions which characterize the territory. We study the climate´s evolution and carry out a historical register in order to detect changes.
We are working on discovering the dynamics, severity and evolution of natural phenomena that can cause damage and economic losses to the population. The knowledge obtained have enormous potential of technological transference, as it allows for innovation in prediction, prevention and protection from natural risks.
Analyzing climate change and its effects on biodiversity and the use of natural resources.
Remote sensing and mapping
We are working on the general and thematic mapping of the territory.
Ecology and biodiversity
Developing projects which affect a variety of natural systems in Andorra: fields and pastures, lakes, forests... We establish monitoring and analysis studies of the most sensitive areas.
We study the different levels of flora, vegetation, fungi, briophytes and lichens, to know their state and improve their conservation.
The study of butterflies, common birds and other groups of fauna allow for the improvement in conservation efforts for these groups of living beings and provide up-to-date information for territorial management.
Projects which study the geology and geomorphology of the Principality of Andorra.
