What’s new on the Brewer

What’s new on the Brewer article picture
Published: Monday, February 9, 2015 Last year we launched a new website dedicated to the Brewer Spectrophotometer. Recently we added two new articles on interesting research performed with Brewers. One describes the observations of volcanic activity over Obninsk, Russia and the other one on the vertical distribution of ozone over UAE. Thanks to our product engineer Alexander Visser we now also have expanded the photo gallery with many great Brewer scenes that are worth a view.

The article by Khalid Masood Syed, Meteorologist at the National Center of Meteorology & Seismology (NCMS), Ministry of Presidential Affairs (MOPA) in Abu Dhabi, UAE shows the vertical distribution of ozone as well as its seasonal variation, measured with their Brewers. The seasonal and daily variation in Ultra Violet UV radiation and its comparison with ozone are also discussed. The Ozone station in Abu Dhabi was established during July 1998, including an MkII Brewer. In 2014 an MkIII Brewer was added to upgrade the station.

During the last decade several volcanoes, located in Iceland, have demonstrated remarkable activity and have disturbed the European community because huge amounts of volcano emissions, including ash and sulphur-bearing chemicals, have been released during these processes. Mr. N.V. Tereb wrote an article about the Brewer observations of activity of the volcano Baurdarbunga. According to the author’s knowledge, the presented results can be considered as the first record of volcanic emissions using ground-based optical measurements with a Brewer spectrophotometer at such a large distance of about 3000 km.

Our product engineers travel regularly to install, calibrate or service Brewers. You can read more about their work in the ‘recent installation & recalibration’ section of the website. But please also have a look at the gallery to get an impression on where the Brewers are located.

If you would like to contribute to the Brewer website with a research paper, pictures, user story, or coordinates for the map, please let us know with an email to .
