Techniques used for monitoring the performance of Brewer Mk IV spectrophotometers in the US EPA / UGA UV monitoring network

Kimlin, Michael G., Slusser, James R., Schallhorn, Kathryn A., Lantz, Kathleen, & Meltzer, Richard (2005) Techniques used for monitoring the performance of Brewer Mk IV spectrophotometers in the US EPA / UGA UV monitoring network. Applied Optics, 44(4), 041009-041089.

Abstract

We present data describing various techniques that operators of Brewer spectrophotometers can use to monitor and maintain the long-term performance of their instrument. The National Ultraviolet Monitoring Center (NUVMC) at the University of Georgia (UGA) operates, under contract from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 21 Brewer spectrophotometer instruments. Due to the remote location of the instruments, constant monitoring of instrument performance is required to ensure that the instruments' performance does not deteriorate, hence impacting on data collection and quality. These techniques are illustrated with data from the Brewer instruments in the UGA/EPA network. © 2005 Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
