PhD Student, Ca' Foscari University of Venice

Master’s degree in Applied and Environmental Geology at the University of Turin. She worked as study grant holder on the Nunataryuk (Horizon 2020) at ISP-CNR. Now she studies the POPs distribution in permafrost.

Spagnesi Azzurra

PhD Student, Ca' Foscari University of Venice

Graduated in paleoclimatology, with previous experience in dendrochronology and Surface Exposure Dating (SED), I currently work on paleoclimatic reconstructions through the continuous analysis of alpine ice cores.


PhD STUDENT, University of Siena

PhD Student in Polar Sciences with a thesis focused on Antarctic ablation areas (i.e. glazed snow, megadunes and blue ice), by means of remote-sensing applications, in order to map these zones and analyze their trends in space and time.

Aulicino giuseppe

research assistant, parthenope university of Naples

PhD in Polar Science (2011). Research interests in oceanography (Seaice; Ocean-ice-atmosphere exchanges; Polynyas; Eddies; AUVs and UAVs; Multiplatform monitoring) and remote sensing (SAR, PMW, TIR, altimetry). Former APECS-Italy coordinator.

bonomelli sara

MSc student, University of Milan

I carried out my bachelor’s degree in Natural Sciences, acquiring skills ranging from earth sciences to biology. I'm currently continuing my studies with a master’s degree always in the field of Natural Sciences and in particular I'm concentrating, with my master’s degree thesis, on Arctic glaciology.


PHD Student, Ca' Foscari University of Venice

He deals with modifications in Arctic and Atlantic water masses circulation in Kongsfjorden (Svalbard) in response to global environmental changes.

Petteni Agnese

PhD Student, Ca' Foscari University of Venice

Suaria Giuseppe

Researcher, CNR-ISMAR
