Site Coodinates and Elevation:

  • Latitude: 28.30932° North
  • Longitude: 16.49906° West
  • Elevation: 2391.0 Meters

Site Description:

  • Izana observatory (IZO) site is the master-sun calibration site for PHOTONS-RIMA-AERONET Cimel sunphotometer network.
    IZO is located on the island of Tenerife (The Canary Islands) at 2367 m a.s.l. The observatory is situated on the top of a mountain plateau located in a pre-national park area protected by the sky law. IZO is normally above a temperature inversion layer, and so, free from local anthropogenic source influences. The sky is usually free of clouds and as a result is extremely clean and suitable for radiation measurements and sun calibrations. IZO is a World Meteorological Organization-Global Atmospheric Watch (GAW) station of global representativeness.
