Monitoring of solar spectral ultraviolet irradiance in Aosta, Italy

Ilias Fountoulakis et al.

Data sets

Level 2 spectra of the global solar irradiance in the wavelength range 290 - 500 nm measured at Aosta - Saint Christophe, Italy by the Bentham DTMc300 with serial number 5541 in 2006 - 2019 Ilias Fountoulakis, Henri Diémoz, Annamaria Siani, Gregor Hülsen, and Julian Gröbner https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.4028907

Short summary
In this study we discuss the procedures and the technical aspects which ensure the high quality of the measurements of the global solar ultraviolet (UV) irradiance performed by a Bentham spectroradiometer located at Aosta–Saint-Christophe (north-western Alps), Italy. This particular instrument is the reference for the Aosta Valley UV monitoring network, which is the first UV monitoring network in Italy. The final spectra constitute one of the most accurate datasets globally.
