Version 2 NSF network data

We are currently producing a new version of NSF network data, named "Version 2"*. Compared to the currently published version (Version 0), Version 2 data will have a higher accuracy and feature a larger number of data products. In addition, each measured UV spectrum will be complemented with a model spectrum that has been calculated with a radiative transfer model.

Status as of 12/08/2016:

  • McMurdo Station:
    Version 2 data of the period December 1989 - Feburary 2010 can be downloaded here. Data from August 2010 onward are available from the NOAA Antarctic UV Monitoring Network website. A paper introducing Version 2 McMurdo data has been published by Journal of Geophysical Research and can accessed here.
  • Palmer Station:
    Version 2 data of the period March 1990 - September 2010 can be downloaded here. Data from October 2010 onward are available from the NOAA Antarctic UV Monitoring Network website. A paper introducing Version 2 Palmer data has been published in the proceedings of the SPIE conference "Optics and Photonics" and can be downloaded here.
  • South Pole Station:
    Version 2 data of the period October 1990 - March 2010 can be downloaded here. Data from September 2010 onward are available from the NOAA Antarctic UV Monitoring Network website. A paper introducing the new data set has been published by Journal of Geophysical Research and can accessed here.
  • Ushuaia:
    Version 2 data for the period November 1998 - November 2008 can be downloaded here.
  • San Diego:
    We are currently not planning to produce Version 2 data for San Diego.
  • Barrow:
    Version 2 data of our entire Barrow data set (January 1991 - July 2016) can be downloaded here. A publication introducing this data set has been published by Journal of Geophysical Research and can accessed here.
  • Summit:
    Version 2 data of Volumes 14 - 26 (2004-2016) from Summit can be downloaded here. More information is available here, including a paper published in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics.

    New corrections:
    The following corrections have been implemented in Version 2:

    A detailed description of these corrections can be found here.

    New data products:
    The following data products are part of Version 2:

    A detailed description of these data products, including example files can be found here.

    Radiative transfer model:
    Model calculations that are part of Version 2 were performed with the radiative transfer model UVSPEC/libRadtran. More about the model implementation can be found here.

    Documentation:

    • The procedure of converting Version 0 data to Version 2 data has been described in a paper introducing the Version 2 data set from South Pole that has been published by Journal of Geophysical Research. The paper is available here.

    Where is "Version 1"?
    Version 1 does not exist. As the original (=first) version was called "Version 0" rather than "Version 1," we decided to call the new version "Version 2" to avoid confusion.

    For more information contact us.
    We encourage you to share your opinion about Version 2 with us. Your input will help to make this new data product better.
