However, instrumental harmonization has been done since 2014 by adapting the instrumental quality assurance protocols routinely applied in EARLINET (Wandinger et al.

At present, EARLINET counts with 3 Spanish stations being CIEMAT one of them (CIEMAT-Madrid EARLINET #21 station) (Rocadenbosch et al.
In coordination with NASA (responsible for CALIPSO operation) EARLINET started in a correlative measurements schedule for CALIPSO validation purposes.
The plots show the results of comparing measurements taken from the EARLINET #21 station (CIEMAT-Madrid) in coincidence with the passing of CALIPSO.
