New CIAI's seminar: Stability of the RBCC-E Triad and Implementation of UV measurements on EUBREWNET
  On 23 February 2017 at 13:00, Dr Sergio F. León Luis (AEMET) imparted the seminar entitled "Stability of the RBCC-E Triad and Implementation of UV measurements on EUBREWNET" at the Izaña Atmospheric Research Center's Offices in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Sergio talked about two on-going studies performed by the RBCC-E Group about  which two posters were presented in the last QOS (Quadrennial Ozone Symposium), in 2016.

“A new zenith-looking narrow-band radiometer-based system (ZEN) for dust aerosol optical depth monitoring” paper published in AMT.
There are currently extensive networks of ground-based sun-photometers all over the world dedicated to aerosols monitoring. These networks are integrated by very precise instruments, close to the 0.02 aerosol optical depth (AOD) accuracy in the visible spectral range suggested as a goal by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). However, there is a lack of stations in desert regions in the Northern Hemisphere, which are the most important source of mineral dust, mainly due to the high cost of these sophisticated sun-photometers, the More...

“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...
