The Atmospheric Optics Group of Valladolid University (GOA-UVa) is involved in the study of atmospheric components, mainly aerosols, with optical methods. The GOA calibration facility is devoted to radiometric calibration of optical instrumentations such as photometers, and it is part of the AERONET-Europe Central Facility, partially funded by the European Union.

As a university group, our researchers carry out educational and training activity (graduate, master and PhD thesis).

In this site you can find information about the work of the group, members, research lines, publications, projects, vacancies, etc.
