2000-2001 NSF Network Operations Report

This report is one of a series of operations reports of the NSF Office of Polar Program's UV Spectroradiometer Network. It complements Volume 10 data from the years 2000-2001.

Section 1 is an introduction and executive summary.

Section 2 provides a detailed description of the instrumentation deployed at the network sites, including SUV-100 Spectroradiometer specifications and operational requirements, ancillary sensors, calibration equipment, system control software, and the SUV-150 spectroradiometer.

Section 3 describes each of the network sites.

Section 4 discusses spectral measurements routinely performed by the network instruments, and the methods to process final data from the instrument�s raw data.

Section 5 discusses the calibration standards used to process Volume 10 data for each site and gives the results of the quality control procedures applied. Topics include irradiance calibration, instrument stability, wavelength calibration, and missing data.

Section 6 describes the contents and format of the published data including the database structures.

Section 7 provides examples of network data for each of the sites including total column ozone, noon-time UV levels, and daily doses; and discusses differences between the sites, UV irradiance trends, and factors affecting UV radiation.

The Appendices include errata, references, and code fragments for dose-rate calculations.
