Paper Abstract

A UV spectrometer system is developed consisting of a highly accurate scanning double monochromator for especially the biologically relevant UV-B region and a multichannel detection system for UV-A radiation measurements. Integrated global irradiance is monitored continuously using a pyranometer. The operation of the combined system is fully automatic. The system is mounted in a light-tight and temperature-stabilized mobile container. The advantage of the combination of the two spectrometers is a reduction of the duration of a measurement cycle and the possibility to study systematic measurement errors. An additional advantage is that differences in global irradiances can be detected by a series of multichannel measurements during the scan of the shorter wavelengths.
