Academic Background

Nazzareno Diodato was educated at the University of Naples Federico II, and conducted postgraduate studies at the UCAR-University Corporation for Atmospheric Research. As the first man administrator of the Met European Research Observatory (MetEORBS) from 1986 today, Diodato focused agency efforts on restoring regional climatic dataset, modelling environmental variables, and delivering climate science information. Afterwards to the joining MetEROBS, Diodato was elected Fellow of the Royal Meterologial Society (RMetS), and was a committee member for 15 years on the CEM - Commission on Ecosystem Management of the International Union for Conservation of Nature. From 2012 he has been a member of the DIG-GEWEX - Drought Information Group of the Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment (World Climate Research Programme).
