Changes in the total ozone in the Earth’s atmosphere affect both the observed atmospheric changes and the climate of our planet. Ground-based measurements of the total ozone in the Russian Federation are carried out with the use of Dobson and Brewer spectrophotometers and SAOZ spectrometers; M-124 filter ozonometers are used in the Russian ozone network. In the near future, we will start the installation and trial operation of up-to-date automated UVOS spectrometers for observations of the total ozone and UV radiation. The work describes the main specifications of equipment used in ground-based measurements of the total ozone in Russia. The problems of modernization of the national network for the total ozone and UV solar radiation monitoring are considered.
