Infrastructure & Equipment

  • One Brewer MK IV monochromator measuring columnar amounts of ozone, SO2 and NO2. It is also operating as a spectroradiometer, measuring irradiances in the UV-B part of the spectrum at 0.5 nm intervals.
     
  • A NILU-UV multi-filter radiometer measuring solar radiation in the UV-B and UV-A parts of the spectrum as well as photo-synthetically active radiation (PAR) (site of the Hellenic Network for Solar UV Radiation).
     
  • A UV multi-filter rotating shadow band radiometer (UVMFR-7) (in collaboration with the National Observatory of Athens) measuring diffuse and global radiation and aerosol optical depth in the UV range.
     
  • A CIMEL sun photometer (in collaboration with the National Observatory of Athens) measuring aerosol optical properties (site of the NASA Aerosol Robotic Network).
     
  • A pyranometer CM11 measuring shortwave irradiance (site of the Hellenic Network for Solar Energy).
     
  • Other radiometric instruments, central computer facility.
     
  • A complete meteorological station providing measurements of air temperature, relative humidity, atmospheric pressure, precipitation, wind speed and wind direction.
