Ecuador contributes to the NASA SHADOZ network with 36 probes per year through the USFQ Atmospheric Measurement Station

The Universidad San Francisco de Quito (USFQ) has the Atmospheric Research Institute (IIA), which conducts surveys of the ozone layer from its Atmospheric Measurement Station (EMA). Since the summer of 2021, EMA has joined the NASA SHADOZ (Southern Hemisphere Additional Ozonesondes) network, whose objective is to monitor the state of the ozone column in territories of the tropics and the Southern Hemisphere.
