Abstract:

A filter wheel UV Spectroirradiometer UVS was used to measure solar UV fluxes in 10 bandpasses in the 200-400 nm region at altitudes up to 40 km on Stratcom 8A. Ozone layer thicknesses were derived from the balloon ascent measurements and an ozone density profile obtained. Measurements at the 39-40 km float altitude before and after local noon give a solar flux in the 220 or - 5 nm O2-O3 transmission window of .00000453 Wsq cm-nm. Author
