Proyecto Calima: colaboración entre el Centro de Investigación Atmosférica Izaña y la Consejería de Educación y Universidades del Gobierno de Canarias en el marco del programa Globe
  La Consejería de Educación y Universidades del Gobierno de Canarias y el Centro de Investigación Atmosférica Izana (IARC) de AEMET han iniciado un proyecto conjunto para crear conciencia entre la comunidad educativa sobre el problema del polvo en la atmósfera y su impacto en la salud y el medio ambiente. El proyecto se denomina “Calima” y complementa otra iniciativa de la Consejería de Educación y Universidades, el proyecto Clima. El proyecto Calima incluye la actividad innovadora del uso de instrumentos de teledetección More...

Installed the scientific equipment of the R+D infrastructure project co-financed by ERDF funds
  The new scientific equipment has been obtained through the project “Equipment for the Monitoring and Research on the atmospheric components that cause and modulate climate change at the Izaña GAW (Global Atmospheric Watch) (Tenerife)” (contract nº AEDM15-BE-3319), with a total monetary value of almost 410,000 euros. It has been completely installed during this April 2018 at the Izaña Observatory. This facility is managed by the Izaña Atmospheric Research Centre (IARC) of the State Meteorological Agency of Spain (AEMET). This More...

Thermal and rainfall behaviour analysis of winter 2017-18 at Izaña Observatory
During the 3 main months of the past winter, the Izaña Observatory underwent several periods of different thermal behaviours. In the following figures, it is observed how the highest and lowest temperatures varied during the last winter (left) and during the period from December 2016 to February 2017 (right).     From December 2017 to January 2018, the highest and lowest temperature were close to corresponding average levels registered on the 1981-2010 period. However, there were some exceptional registers during this time: On More...

The work of women at the Izaña Atmospheric Research Centre
  Our observatory’s history goes back more than a hundred years (for more information about it, click here). In those times, women played an auxiliary or a “support” role to the research activities that were mostly conducted by men. Fortunately, this situation has changed over time, and in an accelerated way in recent years. Right now, there are 16 women working at the Izaña Atmospheric Research Centre (IARC) as permanent members of staff or as direct contributors, and 8 of these 16 women are doctors. In this little scientific More...

New seminar: "Atmospheric particles above the ocean: worldwide atmospheric transportation of microorganisms and the effects of mineral dust on maritime ecosystems"
    On 20th February 2018, at 13:30,  Dr. Jesús Arrieta, a researcher from the Spanish Oceanographic Institute, held a seminar entitled “Atmospheric particles above the ocean: worldwide atmospheric transportation of microorganisms and the effects of mineral dust on maritime ecosystems” at the offices of the Izaña Atmospheric Research Centre in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. During his presentation, the speaker showed us some very interesting results drawn from the world-wide scale research about the airborne microbes that was carried out More...
