Emiel is currently a professional research assistant with the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) at the University of Colorado in Boulder, CO. Emiel works in the Global Radiation Group (GRAD) within the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Global Monitoring Laboratory. His primary focus is on calibration of shortwave and longwave radiometers including pyranometers, pyrheliometers, and pyrgeometers. NOAA is the Region IV calibration facility for the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). Emiel performs calibrations of and maintains the WMO Region IV standard group of cavity pyrheliometers. These cavity radiometers are traceable to WMO’s World Radiation Reference group of pyrheliometers in Davos, Switzerland. With the NOAA standard group, Emiel is able to provide high quality, traceable calibrations to field radiometers that are operated at various sites around the globe. Emiel is also responsible for building, installing, and maintaining surface radiation measurement networks including the NOAA Baseline Observatories, NOAA Surface Radiation (SURFRAD) and Mobile Surface Radiation (MSURFRAD) projects, as well as the NOAA Antarctic Ultra Violet (UV) monitoring network.
