Teaching is concentrated in the faculties and schools, and the departments deal with research, which is also conducted by institutes and chairs, at the same time responsible for knowledge promotion.
The station is on the roof of Polytechnic School’s PII Building (41.96º N, 2.83º E 115m s.n.m.) and has been collecting various meteorological and radiation variables since the end of 1993. The acquisition systems and sensors were acquired with grants from the DGR (General Research Directorate) of the Government of Catalonia, the CIRIT (Interdepartmental Commission for Research and Technological Innovation), the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, the MCI (Ministry of Science and Innovation), through the NUCLIER, NUCLIEREX, NUCLIERSOL and NUBESOL projects, and from the University of Girona itself. It also maintains and acquires irradiance measurements to update the Map of Solar Radiation of Catalonia, for ICAEN (Catalan Institute of Energy).
The measurements are taken in an automated way and are mediated or integrated at different intervals. A daily maintenance and quality assurance protocol is carried out, which consists of verifying the levels and desiccants of each instrument, cleaning the domes and devices, overseeing communications and the times of dataloggers and computers, among other tasks. The data archives are also subsequently reviewed.
Below you can see the most important information from the instruments available.
Radiation is measured by automated sensors, but a Campbell-Stokes heliograph is also used to obtain sunshine through the classic burnt card method (from the 19th century). With respect to the automated measurements, they are in wideband in three regions of the electromagnetic spectrum:
These measurements are completed with spectral measurements in some wavelengths.
