New study published in Tellus B. A decadal inversion of CO2 using the Global Eulerian–Lagrangian Coupled Atmospheric model (GELCA): sensitivity to the ground-based observation network
    A group of scientists working mainly in Japanese and Russian institutions has published a study in the scientific review Tellus B. This scientific paper presents the atmospheric-carbon-dioxide assimilation system of the Global Eulerian-Lagrangian Coupled Atmospheric (GELCA) transport model of the National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES) of Japan. A researcher from Izaña Atmospheric Research Center has participated in this study contributing to the evaluation, flux inversion, interpretation of the results, and writing of More...

The Hirlam Management Group visits the Izaña Atmospheric Observatory
  The High Resolution Limited Area Model Consortium (HIRLAM – http://hirlam.org) was established in 1985, and it is integrated by the National Meteorological Services from Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Lithuania, Holland, Norway, Spain and Sweden, with France as an associated member. In 1991 began a collaboration with the ALADIN, formed by 16 countries: Algeria, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Morocco, Poland, Portugal, Rumania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Tunis and Turkey. For two decades More...

The new article entitled “Speciation of organic aerosols in the Saharan Air Layer and in the free troposphere westerlies” has been published in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics Discussions.
      Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics Discussions (ACPD) has published in the last volume a study performed by Scientists of the Izaña Atmospheric Research Centre (IARC) entitled “Speciation of organic aerosols in the Saharan Air Layer and in the free troposphere westerlies”. The paper is opened for public review and discussion until the 24th April 2017. Atmospheric aerosols - liquid and solid particles blowing in the air - influence on climate, human health, continental and marine ecosystems, and visibility. The magnitude of More...

“Compatibility of different measurement techniques of global solar radiation and application for long-term observations at Izaña Observatory” paper published in AMT
A 1-year intercomparison of classical and modern radiation and sunshine duration instruments has been performed at Izaña Atmospheric Observatory (IZO) located in Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain) starting on July 17, 2014. We compare global solar radiation (GSR) records measured with a CM-21 pyranometer Kipp & Zonen, taken in the framework of the Baseline Surface Radiation Network, with those measured with a Multifilter Rotating Shadowband Radiometer (MFRSR), and a bimetallic pyranometer (PYR), and GSR estimated from sunshine duration More...
