Multi-Wavelength Determination of Total Ozone and Ultraviolet Irradiance

  • Alex E. S. Green
Part of the NATO Conference Series book series (NATOCS, volume 7)


An improved analysis of our multi-wavelength least square method of total ozone determination is given for various monochromator band passes. The refinements include use of new input data as described in another conference paper, improved instrument slit function characterization and absolute calibration. The requirements for a system which will simultaneously provide accurate ozone monitoring and ultraviolet spectral irradiance monitoring are defined.
