We are/were involved in different projects both with a research or monitoring purposes. As a research activity we are interested in bird migration and sea birds activity. In these cases we use radars to investigate the nocturnal passage of birds, to describe flight characteristics (i.e. flight altitude, speed, flight directions) and to evaluate the influence of weather conditions and other variables (i.e. topography, time of the day) on the birds’ behaviour.
As a monitoring activity we provide data on potential conflicts between human activities and infrastructures and birds. We monitored birds’ activity in airports and along powerlines.
