Calibration of 70 TENUM Calitoo sun-photometers
From October 7th to 9th, 2014, 70 Calitoo sun-photometers have been calibrated at Izaña station (IARC-AEMET). This small educational sun-photometer has been manufactured by TENUM and developed with the help of the Laboratoire d'Optique Atmosphérique (LOA; CNRS-University of Lille). Calitoos are involved in the Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) program that is a worldwide hands-on, primary and secondary school-based science and education program.After manufacturing, the sun-photometers should be calibrated More...

New paper published in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics Discussion entitled "Trends of ozone total columns and vertical distribution from FTIR observations at 8 NDACC stations around the globe" by Vigouroux et al.
This paper aims at analysingthe total and vertical ozone trends and variability by using eight of the Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Compososition Change (NDACC) stations having a long-term time series of ozone measured by the FTIR technique (Fourier Transform Infrared), namely: Ny-Alesund (79° N), Thule (77° N), Kiruna (68° N), Harestua (60° N), Jungfraujoch (47° N), Izaña (28° N), Wollongong (34° S) and Lauder (45° S). The length of the FTIR time-series varies by station, but is typically from about 1995 to present. More...
