The research UVEMA (Effects of UV radiation on Materials) project is leaded by the Finnish Meteorological Institute. The main goals of the UVEMA project is to gain a more profound understanding of the effect of UV radiation and weather conditions on materials and to develop a testing environment comparable to realistic natural ageing conditions. One of the testing stations is the Izaña Observatory. For details, please, visit the UVEMA web page.
