Dra. Rosa García

Graduated in physics at the University of La Laguna in Tenerife and researcher at UVA since 2008, within the specific agreement of collaboration between the (former) National Institute of Meteorology and the University of Valladolid for the establishment of quality control methodologies and systems for the photometry, atmospheric radiometry, ozone and aerosols programs within the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Global Atmospheric Watch (GAW) Programme. She defended the diploma of advanced studies at Valladolid University in July 2008, with a work entitled: “Capacity analysis of radiative transfer models for the calibration of radiometers: Application to the NILU-UV radiometer”. This work has been supervised by Dr. Alberto Berjón Arroyo and Dr. Ángel de Frutos and she defended his PhD in physics by the University of Valladolid (December 2011), with a thesis entitled: “Radiative Model Application for the operative control of the BSRN (Baseline Surface Radiation Network) program at the Izaña Atmospheric Research Center” . This thesis has been supervised by Dr. Victoria Eugenia Cachorro Revilla, from the Applied Physics Department at the Valladolid University, and Dr. Emilio Cuevas Agulló, Director of the Izaña Atmospheric Research Center (AEMET). At the present she is responsible of the BSRN program at the Izaña station, also in charge on methodologies of calibration of specific radiation instruments, quality control (as required by the BSRN network), and the application of radiative transference modeling, in order to evaluate experimental data quality, and for data rescue and long term series reconstruction.
