PHOTONS and RIMA/AERONET Calibration Facility

The Izaña Observatory is the absolute sun calibration (Langley method) facility of PHOTONS (PHOtométrie pour le Traitement Opérationnel de Normalisation Satellitaire) and the Red Ibérica de medida Fotométrica de Aerosoles (RIMA) networks. PHOTONS and RIMA are federated networks of the AErosol RObotic NETwork  (AERONET). Cimel Masters of PHOTONS and RIMA are co-shared. Sky calibrations are performed with an integrated sphere provided by RIMA.
