Dra. Carmen Guirado Fuentes

Graduate in Physics at University of La Laguna in Tenerife and PhD at University of Valladolid. She has been research scientist at University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and University of Valladolid in the framework of several research projects on atmospheric composition (column aerosols, water vapor and ozone), spectral ultraviolet radiation, and calibration of optical radiation instruments. Currently she is working for the Group of Atmospheric Optics in the Izaña Atmospheric Research Center facilities (IARC, State Meteorological Agency of Spain – AEMET). She is in charge of the master sun-photometers belonging to AERONET-Europe infrastructure (ACTRIS-2 project) during their calibration at the IARC facility. She is carrying out calibration activities (direct sun/lunar and radiance measurements), quality control and quality assurance, troubleshooting, maintenance and repair works, training courses on photometer operation, and participation in field campaigns. At present her research focuses on the study of atmospheric aerosols by optical methods, with particular emphasis on mineral dust aerosols.
