Paper Abstract

At present the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Reference Spectroradiometric Network consists of 4 sites: Table Mt. CO, Ft. Collins CO, Lamont OK (The ARM program SGP site), and Beltsville MD. At each site we operate a 1-meter cascaded additive-double Czerny-Turner scanning monochromator with a bi-alkali Photomultiplier and photon-counting detection. Irradiance calibrations are provided for the instrument at Table Mt CO by NOAA's Central Ultraviolet Calibration Facility (CUCF) from NIST-traceable standards. Calibrations are transferred from this instrument to others in the network (and additional stability monitoring of the primary instrument conducted) using shippable transfer calibrators we have designed. Here we describe these transfer calibrators, and our operational experience seen at the Table Mt. Site in 2002 and 2003 to date.
