The Center provides a number of competitive products and services to both public and private clients.
Currently, our portfolio includes:
Including the testing, calibrating, and optimizing of cost-effective miniaturised sensors for atmospheric measurements.
The provision of specific model applications for regional (high resolution) climate and forecasting services for key sector/s such as renewable energy, agriculture and tourism.
The provision of expert support, training, and education, as well as privileged access to world-class research infrastructure available at CoE, that is unique in the EMME region.
The provision of competitive services for atmospheric measurements (air sampling, chemical analyses).
Integration of prototype and commercial sensors in UAS for advanced atmospheric research.
Performance of high-altitude and sophisticated-patterned flights with atmospheric sensors in the Unmanned Systems Research Laboratory’s (USRL) exclusive airspace at Orounda
3D documentation of diverse terrains and objects with complex geometry utilizing customized Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) camera systems
Development of tailored-made ready-to-fly UAS systems for specific applications (upon request)
National Greenhouse Gases Emission Inventory Report for 2020 &2021
Assignment for the preparation of the National Greenhouse Gas Inventory Report for 2020 and 2021
The inventories include 7 greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, sulfur hexafluoride and nitrogen trifluoride) deriving from 5 different sources (energy, industry and solvent use, waste management, waste management, land and forestry). The inventories to be calculated for the 2020 report cover the years 1990-2018 while the ones for the 2021 report cover the years 1990-2019.
Under the framework of the:
National Air Pollution Emission Inventory Database
Assignment for the preparation of the National Emissions Inventory Database
The inventories include 5 air pollutants (sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, volatile organic compounds other than methane, ammonia and suspended particles up to 2.5μm), deriving from various sources (energy, industry and solvent use, waste management, waste management, land, forestry etc) The inventories to be calculated for the 2020 report cover the years 1990-2018.
Under the framework of the:
Chemical analysis of particulate matter for the determination of Metals, Ions, Organic & Elemental Carbon (2015-2020)
PM Filters Analysis for the determination of metals, ions, organic and elemental carbon and the preparation of a Suspension Particle Source Analysis Report in Cyprus for the year 2017-2020.
Test and Validation of new Atmospheric Measurement Technique for the monitoring of Atmospheric Dust
Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) construction with bioaerosol sensors

Assistance for use of Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS) product in the field of air quality monitoring (CAMS_95h)
Chemical analysis of Particulate Matter (PM) for the determination of Metals, Ions, Organic & Elemental Carbon
Chemical analysis of Particulate Matter (PM) for the determination of Metals, Ions, Organic & Elemental Carbon (EMCAIR project)
Supernovae within a distance of 300 light years (or 100 parsec) from the Earth are considered “nearby”, implicated with catastrophic impacts on life through gamma ray bursts and long-lasting, ionizing galactic radiation. Previous studies were inconclusive, in particular about the consequences on the stratospheric ozone layer through the generation of nitrogen and hydrogen oxides, and on the climate through new particle and cloud formation.
The CLOUD experiment at CERN and comprehensive atmospheric chemistry – climate modelling can be used to investigate if stabilizing feedbacks in the Earth system moderate the impacts, preventing cataclysms such as mass extinctions.
Theodoros Christoudias is an Associate Professor at Cyprus Institute’s Climate and Atmosphere Research Center, working on Earth System modelling using high-performance computing. He is also a Principal Investigator at the CERN CLOUD Experiment. Previously, he worked as an International Fellow at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) in the USA.
He has graduated with a BSc and a PhD in Physics from Imperial College London, UK.
