Ny-Alesund Radiation Measurements and Observatory (Photo: Jürgen Graeser)

At the AWIPEV Atmospheric Observatory in Ny-Alesund, atmospheric key parameters for climate change are monitored on a longterm basis. The measurements include surface and upper-air meteorology, surface based radiation, as well as aerosols and trace gases from ground to the stratosphere. The observations contribute to several international scientific networks like e.g. the  Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN), the Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Composition Changes (NDACC) and the GCOS Reference Upper Air Network (GRUAN).
