Outreach: Science Week 2019
On November 6, 2019, GuMNet participated in “Semana de la Ciencia y la Tecnología en el CSIC 2019” (Science and Technology Week at CSIC 2019) introducing the activity “Investigación y monitorización de la atmósfera y subsuelo en el entorno del Bosque de La Herrería” (Research and monitoring of atmosphere and subsoil in Bosque de La Herrería), which was coordinated by the IGEO-Instituto de Geociencias (Geosciences Institute). The main target was to show attendants how an observational network works, which data are monitored and how these data are used for subsequent research activities.
In order to do so, EG010-Herrería and EG901-Portátil stations, both located at La Herrería forest (El Escorial), were visited. At Herrería the attendants were given some talks about the instrumentation of the tower and subsoil structure, temperature and moisture measurements in subsoil, and uses of soil. Afterwards, the group had the chance to enjoy a pleasant stroll bound for Portátil, having a snack in between at “Pozo del Obregón” (Obregón’s well), where they learnt about the role of preservation played by Patrimonio Nacional. The excursion was topped off with an explanation of the Portátil station instrumentation and its surroundings.
