Recovering Long-term Aerosol Optical Depth Series (1976-2012) from an Astronomical Potassium-based Resonance Scattering Spectrometer
This is the title of the paper published by Africa Barreto, Emilio Cuevas, Pere Pallé, Pedro Miguel Romero, Fernando Almansa, and Christoph Wehrli in Atmospheric Measurement Techniques. It is well known that long-term measurements are the most important approach for detection of changes in atmospheric composition caused by either variation in natural or anthropogenic emissions, as well as in atmospheric processes and sinks, in order to reveal the spatial and temporal variability of Earth’s climate. This information is crucial in the More...

PRESENTATION OF A WEATHER WATCH MODULE AT THE MUSEUM OF SCIENCE AND THE COSMOS
On Friday 21 March took place the launch of the new Weather Watch module at the Museum of Science and the Cosmos, located at San Cristobal de La Laguna village. Its implementation has been made possible thanks to joint efforts of the staff of the Museum and the Izaña Atmospheric Research Center, and the cooperation of Vaisala, company specializing in meteorological instrumentation, and the Teleférico del Teide (Teide cable car).   Figure 1: Weather Watch module at the Museum of Science and the Cosmos (left) and screenshot of the More...

Article on the relationship between mineral dust and meningitis epidemics in Niger
  The journal Environmental Health Perspectives has published the article entitled "Soil Dust Aerosols and Wind as Predictors of Seasonal Meningitis Incidence in Niger". In this paper the incidence of meningitis epidemics is compared over a long period (1996-2006) with climate variables for the same period in Niger. The authors conclude that wind speed and atmospheric mineral dust surface concentrations recorded in November and December can be used to predict infection rates of meningitis during the winter months, when the Harmattan More...

Air quality in the megacity of Wuhan, China. New study published in the journal Aerosol and Air Quality Research.
  The journal Aerosol and Air Quality Research publishes a study on the origin of the pollution episodes caused by PM10 particles in Wuhan megacity, China. This is an industrial city with more than 9 million population. Monsoon exerts an important influence on the seasonal distribution of pollution episodes in this part of China. High PM10 concentrations are recorded during the anticyclonic scenarios linked to dry and cold winter, which prompts temperature inversions at low levels in the city. Daily concentrations of PM10 may exceed More...

Project AIRACOS. Journal Medicina Clínica publishes a Special Article entitled Impact of air pollution on inflammation, oxidative stress and 1 year prognosis in patients hospitalized for acute coronary syndrome: design of AIRACOS study.
  The journal Medicina Clínica publishes, vol 141 (12), an Special Article, entitled Impact of air pollution on inflammation, oxidative stress and 1 year prognosis in patients hospitalized for acute coronary syndrome: design of AIRACOS study. The objective of this project is to study the relationship between exposure to urban ambient air pollutants and acute coronary syndrome.Exposure to ambient air pollutants is associated with adverse effects on human health. About 6 million people die every year in the word due to exposure to air More...

Quality assessment of ozone total column amounts as monitored by ground-based solar absorption spectrometry in the near infrared (>3000 cm-1)”, paper published in Atmospheric Measurement Techniques Discussion
  This paper examines the possibility of ground-based remote sensing ozone total column amounts (OTC) from spectral signatures at 3040 and 4030 cm-1. These spectral regions are routinely measured by the NDACC (Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change) ground-based FTIR (Fourier Transform InfraRed) experiments. In addition, they are potentially detectable by the TCCON (Total Carbon Column Observing Network) FTIR instruments. The ozone retrieval strategy presented here estimates the OTC from NDACC FTIR high resolution More...
