3 GRUAN Station Report for Potenza Overview Currently, only RS data are provided to the GRUAN archive. Aerosol, water vapor, clouds and radiation from lidar, GPS, ceilometers, and radiometers could be included in the future data streams. In particular GPS data stream could be immediately submitted to any GRUAN processing server. Change and change management SHC has been installed and tested. One launch each 15 days will be performed using the manual launcher (including the use of the SHC in the launch procedure), the other weekly launch will be performed with the autolauncher. A new laboratory for the launch of radiosoundings is now operative. Use of an inflation kit to fill in the balloon. A second GPS mobile antenna is available for managing any possible change. A sky camera is also now available. A new pyranometer is available and it will be operational during this year. Resourcing Potenza is continuing to support GRUAN activities using not dedicated funds. Nevertheless the station is negotiating with the Met Service the possibility to transfer a RAOB Italian station to Potenza, adopting a one year transition period before the completion of the transfer. Site assessment and certification POTENZA applied for the certification in A response to the comments provided by the WG GRUAN will be provided by February, 10, GRUAN related research Comparison of water vapor Raman lidar profiles calibrated using difference water vapor measurements.
