Recovering Long-term Aerosol Optical Depth Series (1976-2012) from an Astronomical Potassium-based Resonance Scattering Spectrometer
  Last April was published a long term series of aerosol optical depth (AOD) at Izaña (Tenerife, Spain) retrieved using the Mark-I potassium-based resonant scattering spectrometer, in the journal Atmospheric Measurement Techniques Discussion (AMTD). This work has been possible thanks to the collaboration between the Izaña Atmospheric Research Center (IARC-AEMET) and the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC). This study has implied the recovering of a long term series of AOD (37 years) for Izaña. It can be considered as one of the More...

XXVII edition of the GAWTEC Training course: Aerosols
The XXVII edition of the GAWTEC (Global Atmosphere Watch Training & Education Centre) training course, focused on aerosols, took place from 16th to 29th of November. The course is funded by the German Federal Environment Agency ("Umweltbundesamt", UBA), the Bavarian State Ministry of the Environment and Public Health and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). It was held at the Environmental Research Station Schneefernerhaus ("Umweltforschungsstation Schneefernerhaus", UFS), located in the Zugspitze mountainside (2650 m.a.s.l, More...

New paper published in Atmospheric Measurement Techniques Discussion entitled "Validation of SCIAMACHY HDO/H2O measurements using the TCCON and NDACC-MUSICA networks" by Scheepmaker et al.
Measurements of the atmospheric HDO/H2O ratio help us to better understand thehydrological cycle and improve models to correctly simulate tropospheric humidity andtherefore climate change. The space-based measurements play here a key role and the documentation of their quality is a needed step to use these observations with high confidence.In this context, this paper presents an updated version of the column-averaged HDO/H2O ratio dataset from the remote sensor SCanning Imaging Absorption spectroMeter for AtmosphericCHartographY More...

Calibration of the Cimel sun-photometer of the AERONET station in Cairo (Egypt)
  From November 17th to 21st, 2014, the annual maintenance and SUN and SKY calibration of the Cimel sun-photometer installed at the Cairo_EMA_2 station (AERONET-PHOTONS-RIMA network) have been performed at the Izaña station (IARC-AEMET). This activity has been developed as a contribution to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Sand and Dust Storm Warning Advisory and Assessment System (SDS-WAS). This mission is part of the Izaña’s activities as WMO-CIMO Testbed for Aerosols and Water Vapor Remote Sensing Instruments.Furthermore, More...
