Cooperation with the Antartic Institute of Uruguay
Within the International Polar Year, the Regional Brewer Calibration Center for Europe (RBCC-E), maintained at the Izaña Observatory, has trained four persons of the Antarctic Institute of Uruguay (IAU) in Brewer operation, maintenance and data evaluation at the Izaña Observatory in 2006 and 2007. The Brewer#155, from IAU has been repaired and calibrated by the RBCCE at Izaña. This instrument was installed, with the participation of the RBCCE at the Artigas Antarctic Base (62º S y 59º W; King George, South Shetland Islands) on December 11, 2007. This cooperation project has been co-financed by the Canary Islands Government.
