REDMAAS2019 intercomparison campaign
This week, the group of In-Situ Aerosols of the CIAI has participated in the campaign REDMAAS2019 (Spanish Network of Environmental DMA - Differential Mobility Analyzer). The campaign was carried out in the facilities of the CIEMAT (Center for Energy, Environmental and Technological Research) in Madrid from March 4 to 8, 2019, and part of the REDMAAS network members participated, such as CIEMAT, the Institute University of Environment of the University of A Coruña (IUMA-UDC), the Center of Atmospheric Research of Izaña (CIAI-AEMET), the 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...

"International Day of Women and Girls in Science" from the Izaña Atmospheric Research Center
At a time when most of the challenges we face (energy crisis, environmental crisis, food crisis, ...) depend on Science and Technology, we can not afford to do without the talent of half the population [https://11defebrero.org/]. For this reason, the Izaña Atmospheric Research Center (CIAI), the 11th and the 12th of February, joined several activities to celebrate the “International Day of Women and Girls in Science”. Researchers from the CIAI given several talks explaining the role of women in Science and the scientific activities More...

Evaluation of night-time aerosols measurements and lunar irradiance models in the frame of the first multi-instrument nocturnal intercomparison campaign
    Photometric measurements have been used to provide reliable and valuable information to compile long-term and global Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD) records and other aerosol properties in order to better understand the role of aerosols in the Earth's climate. However, AOD data provided by sun photometers is severely restricted since it is limited to daytime, making full diurnal (24 h) aerosol monitoring and characterization impossible. This important drawback seriously constrains the study of atmospheric processes in which day-to-night More...

“A global database of water vapor isotopes measured with high temporal resolution infrared laser spectroscopy”, a new paper published in Scientific Data, a Nature Research journal.
The isotopic composition of water vapour provides integrated perspectives on the hydrological histories of air masses and has been widely used for tracing physical processes in hydrological and climatic studies. Over the last two decades, the infrared laser spectroscopy technique has been successfully used to measure the isotopic composition of water vapour near the Earth’s surface. In this context, this paper presents for the first time the Stable Water Vapor Isotope Database (SWVID), which assembles a global database of high temporal More...

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...
