UV NET Home UV NET Background Information

The UV network is comprised of 21 sites located in 14 U.S. National Parks and 7 urban areas around the U.S. At the end of 2002, all 21 sites had operational Brewer Spectrophotometers and the current plan is to maintain all 21 sites. The Brewer Spectrophotometer operational configuration includes a computer to collect the UV data and a telephone connection which facilitates data retrieval. A site operator is on duty at each site to perform routine duties related to Brewer operation.

Provided below is a set of background material on the EPA/NPS monitoring network, available via FTP, which includes:

  1. All network Standard Operating Procedures
  2. Brewer operation and service manuals
  3. Example of all raw data files from a Brewer for one day
  4. Relevant publications
