The IDL-UBI is the research unit at UBI of Instituto Dom Luiz (IDL), an Associated Laboratory with a wide research agenda in Earth and Environmental Sciences (

Established in 1853 as the first Portuguese Meteorological and Geophysical Observatory, Instituto Dom Luiz (IDL) has developed into an integrated Earth System Institute, with research in solid Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric processes, their interactions, and their relevance for a sustainable society. IDL hosts a vibrant community, that include Geologists, Physicists, Mathematicians and Engineers, pursuing research within international collaborations, all focused in contributing to leading scientific journals in their fields, from geological to human timescales.

IDL-UBI is hosted by the Faculty of Science, University of Beira Interior, and where about 10 researchers (Ph.D., M.Sc.) develop their research activities in several topics:

  • Climate Change, atmosphere-land-ocean processes and extremes
  • Solid Earth dynamics, hazards and resources
  • GeoInformatics


The members of IDL-UBI are also deeply involved in C4G - Collaboratory for Geosciences (, the leading Research Infrastructure on Geosciences that is hosted by UBI.

Our research efforts are supported through the Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia, the Portuguese Government’s leading funding agency for research, European Framework Programmes for research and other projects.
