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.
