The Choir of the University Carlos III at Izaña
  The July 2 was a special day. Science and culture exchanged experiences at the Izaña Observatory. We were honoured to receive the Choir of the University Carlos III that was on tour in Tenerife and had acted in the Auditorium of Tenerife the day before.   The choir of the Carlos III University during its performance in the Auditorium of Tenerife on July 1, 2018.   This unique event would not have been possible without the initiative of Paco Martin Leon, a renowned meteorologist, AEMET partner recently (and sadly) retired, and More...

“The MUSICA IASI CH4 and N2O products and their comparison to HIPPO, GAW and NDACC FTIR references”, paper published in AMT
This work presents the methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) products as generated by the IASI (Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer) processor developed during the project MUSICA (MUlti-platform remote Sensing of Isotopologues for investigating the Cycle of Atmospheric water). The processor retrieves CH4 and N2O with different water vapour isotopologues (as well as HNO3) and uses a single a priori data set for all the retrievals (no variation in space and time). Firstly, the characteristics and errors of the products are More...

Publication of the paper “EuBrewNet – A European Brewer network (COST Action ES1207), an overview”
The scientific paper “EuBrewNet – A European Brewer network (COST Action ES1207), an overview” has been published in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics (ACP) Journal after the public discussion. This work  describe  the  "European Brewer Network"  with emphasis on the ozone measurements, an overview is given of new calibration and instrument characterization procedures, which are then incorporated into new algorithms for the determination of total column ozone taking account of non-linearities and stray light effects within the More...

The Scientific paper “Internal consistency of the Regional Brewer Calibration Centre for Europe triad during the period 2005 - 2016” has been published in the scientific journal Atmospheric Measurement techniques (AMT).
The Brewer Ozone Spectrophotometer has been the instrument chosen for ground station ozone measurements for the last 30 years. At present, there are more than 200 instruments installed around the world, 50 of them in Europe. The RBCC-E is the centre responsible for the European Brewer network calibration, organizing intercomparison and calibration campaigns with the travelling reference.   This work is focused on showing the internal consistency of the observations made by the RBCC-E triad (Brewer#157, #183 y #185) in the period More...

Publication of the paper “EUBREWNET RBCC-E Huelva 2015 Ozone Brewer intercomparison”
    The scientific paper “EUBREWNET RBCC-E Huelva 2015 Ozone Brewer Intercomparison” has been published in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics (ACP) Journal after the public discussion. This work in the framework of the COST ES1207 project ("European Brewer Network") allows to implement the methodologies developed during  the RBCC-E campaigns (Regional Brewer Calibration Center for Europe (RBCC-E / AEMET))  to the European Network. This paper presents the main results of the EUBREWNET 2015 campaign showing the improvements introduced More...

“Comparison of observed and modeled cloud-free longwave downward radiation (2010-2016) at the high mountain BSRN Izaña station” paper published in Geoscientific Model Development
  This paper presents the comparison study between measured and simulated longwave downward radiation (LDR) under cloud-free conditions was performed at the Izaña Atmospheric Observatory (IZO, Spain) between 2010 and 2016. This analysis encompasses a total of 2062 cases distributed approximately evenly between day and night. Results show an excellent agreement between Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN) measurements and simulations with LibRadtran V2.0.1 and MODerate resolution atmospheric TRANsmission model (MODTRAN) V6 radiative More...
