  • Longitude: 16.24736° West
  • Elevation: 52.0 Meters

Site Description:

  • The instrument is co-located to a Micropulse Lidar (MPL) at the Santa Cruz de Tenerife Observatory on the roof of a 10-floor building (52 m a.s.l.) very near to the city harbour of Santa Cruz, capital of Tenerife island. This is named SCO. Meteorology, surface ozone, total ozone and spectral UV (Brewer spectrophotometer), global, diffuse and direct radiation,, particles (GRIMM-1108 spectrometer) and filter samples are part of an air quality program in the framework of GURME (WMO GAW Urban Research Meteorology and Environmental Project). Meteorological soundings have been launched twice every day from Santa Cruz since 1960. ECC ozone soundings are performed once a week (Wednesdays).
