A PhD degree was obtained by Ángel Gómez (AEMET) at the University of Granada in December 2018
Ángel J. Gómez-Peláez, from the State Meteorologist Corps of Spain, successfully defended his PhD thesis at the University of Granada on December 4, 2018, obtaining the maximum score. The thesis was developed within the PhD program of Physics and Space Sciences of the University of Granada. The thesis entitled "Measurement and transport of atmospheric greenhouse gases, carbon monoxide and Saharan dust, with special emphasis on the subtropical Northeast Atlantic free troposphere" was conducted in the modality of compendium of scientific More...

MEGEI-MAD: Monitoring of the Greenhouse Gases Concentrations in Madrid
The Izaña Atmospheric Research Center (AEMET) coordinates the first experiment in Spain to measure atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) in the total column in an urban environment. The experiment, which takes place in Madrid, is part of the scientific project MEGEI-MAD. Scientists from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT, Germany), the University of Heidelberg (Germany), the Autonomous University of Barcelona, the University of Valladolid and the National Center for Supercomputing, in Barcelona, More...

Publication of the “ACTRIS/AERONET Europe Newsletter (nº2)”
This is the second newsletter and we are happy to share with you some news about our activities. In 2017 and during the first semester of 2018, we (French and Spanish partners) were, as usual, very busy to provide you the best calibration, maintenance services and technical expertise but also to work on new instrumental developments, new calibration and aerosol retrieval techniques. New people came also on board. At the same time, we were all deeply involved in writing our concept paper for the future ACTRIS Research Infrastructure. This More...

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...
