Participation in the NDACC-IRWG/TCCON 2014 Meeting

The Izaña Atmospheric Research Center, together with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, have presented ten studies in the “NDACC-IRWG/TCCON 2014 Meeting“, which was held in Bad Sulza (Germany) from 12 to 16 May 2014.

This conference, jointly organised by the networks TCCON (Total Carbon Column Observing Network) and the infrared group of NDACC (Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change), is the annual meeting of all the international groups working with the FTIR technique (Fourier Transform InfraRed) for monitoring the atmospheric composition. Within this forum, the new improvements on the FTIR technique are shown as well as the current research studies using this measurement system.
