Outreach: Master's degree in Meteorology and Geophysics UCM 2021

On may 25, 2021, GuMNet organized an outreach activity together with the coordination of the Master's degeree in Meteorology and Geophysics imparted by Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM). The goal of this activity was to provide the students with a complementary and practical knowledge of how observational data are recorded for subsequent research activities.


In order to do so, EG010-Herrería station, located in La Herrería forest (El Escorial), was visited. There, the studemts were given some talks on carbon dioxide flows measurements in subsoil, the instrumentation of the tower and subsoil structure. Afterwards, the group moved to Santa María del Buen Aire campside to enjoy some complementary colloquiums that enhanced their knowledge on observational data applications, in terms of investigation and academic activities, about a complete view of view and some works that have made use of GuMNet. The had the chance to know about temperature variability in the area, thermal subsoil diffusion or mountain breezes. We also had the chance to know more about El Bosque de la Herreria and the Centro de Estudios e Investigación para la Gestión de Riesgos Agrarios y Medioambientales (Ceigram), especially about the EIT Climate-KIC Summer School Journey they have been organizing in Madrid since 2018 and where GuMNet has always been a part of. The excursion was topped off with a cultural visit to real Monasterio de San Lorenzo de El Escorial.

We would like to thank every person who participated in the organization of this activity, especially to Manuel Terrón, Mª Mar García Herguido and Vicente González, from Patrimonio Nacional, who gave us the permission for the activity and without whom this would had not been possilbe.
