2003-2004 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 13 data from the years 2003-2004.

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 spectroradiometers, GUV multichannel radiometers, ancillary sensors, calibration equipment, operation procedures, and software.

Section 3 describes 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 13 data for each site and gives the results of the quality control procedures applied. Topics include irradiance calibration, instrument stability, wavelength calibration, missing data, and results from GUV radiometers.

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.

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