The article "GRUAN in the service of GSICS: Using reference ground-based profile measurements to provide traceable radiance calibration for space-based radiometers" by Tradowsky et al. has been published in the Summer Issue of the GSICS (Global Space-based Inter-Calibration System) Quarterly Newsletter (pages 5-6). The newsletter is available here

The article describes how the growing volume of GRUAN measurements can be used for the calibration and validation of space-based sensors and presents activities under way within GRUAN, e.g. the construction of Site Atmospheric State Best Estimates (SASBEs) for the GRUAN site in Lauder. Furthermore, it provides an overview of the "GRUAN processor", a software package under development at the UK Met Office.
