|In response to the increasing worldwide concern for the survival of Venice after the dramatic and widely publicized flooding of November 1966, the National Council Research, CNR, established the Institute for the Study of the Dynamics of Large Masses (ISDGM) created first as a laboratory, in 1969.
The institute actually pertains to the National Committee on Environmental Sciences, though its activity is multidisciplinary. Since its very inception the purposes were multiple from basic research in oceanography and geology to applied research.
Current staff is composed of 38 scientists, 24 technicians and 5 clerical personnel. In 2002, ISDGM was merged with 6 other CNR institutes to establish the Institute for Marine Science (ISMAR) with headquarters in Venice.
The thematic areas of CNR-ISMAR are the following:
