Located in the city of Granada (37.16ºN, 3.61ºW, 680 m asl), a medium-sized non-industrialised city (> 500k inhabitants, including metropolitan area) surrounded by high mountains (1000 to 3398 m asl), and 50km from the Mediterranean coast.

The station combines long-term monitoring of the vertical distribution of atmospheric aerosol with in-situ measurements for aerosol particle characterisation, as well as cloud, solar and atmospheric radiation monitoring at different spectral ranges.

Cerro Poyos (CP) in the Sierra Nevada mountains (37.11ºN, 3.49ºW, 1830 m asl) and the Sierra Nevada Station (SNS) (37.10ºN, 3.39ºW, 2500 m asl), both located about 20km from the UGR station.

These stations offer a unique opportunity to combine remote vertical sounding of the atmospheric column from the UGR station with in-situ measurements at different altitudes on the slopes of the Sierra Nevada at different spectral ranges.
