Data of some Volumes are also available on CD-ROM and can be ordered here.

Data Structure

Version 0 data on the ftp site are organized in the same manner as on CD-ROMs. The following data types are available:

SUV data
  • Full-resolution irradiance spectra. The format has evolved over the years:

    • For the format of data from Volumes 1 - 6 (1989-1997), consult Section 6.3 of the 2000-2001 NSF UV Network Operations Report (PDF file). Spectra are stored in subdirectories named HIGH_RES, MED_RES, AND LOW_RES.
       
    • From Volume 7 onward, spectra are available as "Composite Scans" and can be found in "Composit" subdirectories of each site.

    Some spectra on the ftp have been zipped. Click here for filename convention of zip-files.

  • Databases in ASCII Comma Separated Value (CSV) format. Each "Database" folder includes at least five databases that contain:
    Database 1 System parameters for quality control
    Database 2 Spectral irradiance at selected wavelengths
    (in units of µW cm-2nm-1)
    Database 3 Spectral integrals and dose-rates
    (in units of µW cm-2)
    Database 4 A summary of most important quantities (e.g., erythemal and DNA doses, UV-B)
    Database 5 Information from response scans of the internal irradiance reference lamp
    Daily Dose Spectral integrals and dose-rates from Database 3, integrated over 24 hour time periods (First introduced with Volume 9).
GUV data

Note that GUV data are less accurate than SUV data, in particular at large solar zenith angles and short wavelengths, but GUV database 2 data have a better temporal resolution.

  • GUV data can also be found in "Database" folders.
    GUV Database 1
    (PDF file)
    Measurements concurrent with SUV spectra
    GUV Database 2
    (PDF file)
    Minute-by-minute measurements
Ancillary information
  • Report (in Adobe Portable Data File (PDF) format)

  • NASA TOMS Earth Probe ozone data for network sites

  • Weather data for the spectroradiometer sites for the periods of interest (obtained from the National Climatic Data Center)
