“Aerosol optical depth comparison between GAW-PFR and AERONET-Cimel radiometers from long-term (2005–2015) 1 min synchronous measurements.” paper published in Atmospheric Measurement Techniques
    In this paper, we present a comprehensive comparison of more than 70 000 synchronous 1 min aerosol optical depth (AOD) data from three Global Atmosphere Watch precision-filter radiometers (GAW-PFR), traceable to the World AOD reference, and 15 Aerosol Robotic Network Cimel radiometers (AERONET-Cimel), calibrated individually with the Langley plot technique, was performed for four common or “near” wavelengths, 380, 440, 500 and 870 nm, in the period 2005–2015. This work has been performed in the frame of the WMO CIMO More...

“Description of the Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN) station at the Izaña Observatory (2009-2017): measurements and quality control/assurance procedures.” paper published in Geoscientific Instrumentation, Methods and Data Systems
In this paper, we present a description of the Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN) station at the Izaña Observatory. This station (Station: IZA, #61) is part of this network since 2009. This is a high-mountain station located in Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain; at 28.3° N, 16.5 W, 2373 m a.s.l.) and is a representative site of the subtropical North Atlantic free troposphere (Figure 1).     Figure 1 .- (a) Location of the Izaña station (IZA) on a global map of all BSRN stations  http://bsrn.awi.de). (b) Izaña Atmospheric More...
