High-resolution Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) solar observations are particularly relevant for climate studies, as they allow atmospheric gaseous composition and multiple climate processes to be monitored in detail. In this context, the present paper provides an overview of 20 years of FTIR measurements taken in the framework of the NDACC (Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change) from 1999 to 2018 at the subtropical Izaña Observatory (IZO, Spain). Firstly, long-term instrumental performance is comprehensively assessed, corroborating the temporal stability and reliable instrumental characterization of the two FTIR spectrometers installed at IZO since 1999. Then, the time series of all trace gases contributing to NDACC at IZO are presented (i.e. C$_{2}$H$_{6}$, CH$_{4}$, ClONO$_{2}$, CO, HCl, HCN, H$_{2}$CO, HF, HNO$_{3}$, N$_{2}$O, NO$_{2}$, NO, O$_{3}$, carbonyl sulfide (OCS), and water vapour isotopologues H$_{2}$$^{16}$O, H$_{2}$$^{18}$O, and HD$^{16}$O), reviewing the major accomplishments drawn from these observations. In order to examine the quality and long-term consistency of the IZO FTIR observations, a comparison of those NDACC products for which other high-quality measurement techniques are available at IZO has been performed (i.e. ... mehr
