“Upper tropospheric CH4 and N2O retrievals from MetOp/IASI within the project MUSICA”, paper published in AMTD
This paper presents upper tropospheric methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) concentrations retrieved from thermal infrared spectra as observed by the remote sensor IASI (Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer) on-board the EUMETSAT/MetOp meteorological satellites. The CH4 and N2O mixing ratios are retrieved as side products of the MetOp/IASI retrieval developed for the European Research Council project MUSICA (MUlti-platform remote Sensing of Isotopologues for investigating the Cycle of Atmospheric water). The MUSICA/IASI CH4 and N2O More...

Internal meeting to commemorate the centenary of the Izaña Observatory on December 2, 2016
On December 2, 2016, and a few days before the end of the year, an internal event was held at the Observatory of Izaña, from the Izaña Atmospheric Research Centre (IARC, AEMET), in commemoration of its centenary. This meeting was devoted to people who currently work and worked in the past in this Observatory. This commemorative-emotive meeting focused on the Human Factor of the Observatory, the most important one, which has imprinted the true character to the Izaña Observatory throughout its history. The people of Izaña are border More...

“Compatibility of different measurement techniques. Long-term global solar radiation observations at Izaña Observatory” paper published in AMTD
    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 More...
