Participation in the EUMETSAT Meteorological Satellite Conference 2017
  The Izaña Atmospheric Research Center have presented two studies in the “EUMETSAT Meteorological Satellite Conference 2017“, which was held in Rome (Italy) from 2 to 6 October 2017. The EUMETSAT Conference is the annual meeting of all the international groups developing and using space-based observations taken in the framework of the different monitoring programs of EUMETSAT (European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites). Within this forum, the new improvements on the different space-based remote sensors, More...

New Digital Technical Note on Aerosol Optical Depth traceability obtained from photometers measurements of AERONET-CIMEL and GAW-PFR networks at the Izaña Observatory in the 2005-2015 period.
  On September 25th, 2017, the Technical Digital Note No.23 of the State Meteorological Agency of Spain was published on its website. An analysis of the traceability of the optical aerosol depth (AOD) in the visible and near infrared bands from normal direct irradiance measurements comparison of the AERONET-CIMEL and GAW-PFR photometer networks at the Izaña Observatory is described. The traceability between two different data series of the same variable is a way to measure the homogeneity between them, being able to qualify these series More...

30th Anniversary of the Montreal Protocol celebration
  This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Montreal Protocol, the international agreement that has led to the removal of more than 99% of chemical substances that produce ozone depletion and has contributed significantly to the mitigation of climate change. Thanks to the success and impact of the Protocol, the ozone layer shows incipient signs of recovery and it is expected that by the middle of this century this recovery can be evidenced.

New Seminar: Thermodynamic structure of the subtropical troposphere in North Atlantic Ocean
    On 6 September 2017 at 13:00, PhD Student Judit Carribllo (Sistemas de Datos) imparted the seminar entitled "Thermodynamic structure of the subtropical troposphere in North Atlantic Ocean" at the Izaña Atmospheric Research Center's Offices in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. This talk was a previous training for the PhD work report, defended successfully on 12th of September. The study leaded in this work deals on the analysis and characterization of the stability of the low troposphere, along the east of the subtropical North Atlantic Ocean More...

New study published in AMTD: Adaptive Baseline Finder (ABF), a statistical data selection strategy to identify atmospheric CO2 baseline levels and its application to European elevated mountain stations
A group of scientists working in German, Swiss and Spanish institutions has published a study in the scientific review Atmospheric Measurement Techniques Discussions. A researcher from Izaña Atmospheric Research Center has participated in this study. Critical data selection is essential for determining representative baseline (background or not influenced by local emissions) levels of atmospheric trace gas measurements even at remote measuring sites. Different data selection techniques have been used around the world which could More...
