Ozone monitoring

Measuring the ozone in Earth’s atmosphere and analysing the trends are important for determining ozone-related climate changes.

Radiation monitoring

Long-term monitoring of radiation fluxes between the atmosphere and the earth’s surface is important for climate research.

Aerosol monitoring

Aerosols, tiny particles in the air, are important for climate research. The exact effect on the atmosphere has yet to be fully researched.

Saharan dust events

Saharan dust events contribute significantly to the aerosol load during spring and autumn. These events are detected with continuous measurements.
