Comparison of measured and modelled UV spectral irradiance at the Izaña station based on Libradtran and UVA-goa models

Abstract

This work compares spectral measurements made with the spectroradiometer Bentham DMT300 and the simulations obtained with two radiative transfer models UVA-GOA and LibRadtran. The measurements were made on the 1st of June of 2005, during the QASUME (Quality Assurance of Solar Ultraviolet Spectral Irradiance Measurements) intercomparison at the Izaña station. This station belongs to AEMET(Meteorological State Agency of Spain), and is located on Tenerife Island (Spain) at 2.400 m above sea level (28º17.9´ N, 16º24.96´ W).

This work was developed within the Specific Agreement of Collaboration between the University of Valladolid and the CIAI-AEMET “Establish methodologies and quality assurance systems for programs of photometry, radiometry, atmospheric ozone and aerosols within the atmospheric monitoring program of the WMO”
