Iberian network for aerosol measurements

Welcome to RIMA, Sun photometer network federated to AERONET. The Iberian network for Sun photometer aerosol measurements is a scientific network, that was created in 2004 with the aim of promoting the collaboration among the partner institutions, all of them devoted to the measurement and analysis of the columnar atmospheric aerosol properties. Following the AERONET purposes, the scientific objectives of RIMA are the characterization of the aerosol for climate studies and the validation of satellite products.


Since 2006, RIMA has a calibration facility for the Cimel sun photometers. The calibration process and network management are carried out by the Group of Atmospheric Optics of the University of Valladolid (GOA-UVa) in collaboration with the Izaña Atmospheric Research Center (AEMET). Large support is obtained from the AERONET (NASA) and PHOTONS (Univ. of Lille).
