Abstract

We used a microcomputer-controlled total ozone portable spectroradiometer instrument #21 (MTOPS21) to measure solar radiation at 298, 304 and 310 nm in Greenbelt, Md., during 1995. One day’s ozone measurements from a Brewer instrument (B105) were used to calibrate the 304- and 310-nm channel ratios to a theoretical model. Total ozone estimates were then determined for the entire MTOPS21 data set. Differences between individual B105 and MTOPS21 ozone estimates show a 1% drop as solar zenith angles increase and depend on atmospheric attenuation and SO2 variation at the ±2% level. Daily average values agree well (<0.5% average offset, 2% standard deviation).
