An excellent summary of solar UV measurement for anyone involved in, or contemplating, measuring the UV part of the solar spectrum. The book is addressed predominantly to the newcomer to this expanding area of environmental measurement, but contains sufficient detail and practical information to be a valuable reference for the more experienced worker. The practical considerations of solar UV measurement are clearly described and the book explores the current state of the art of UV monitoring, explained by the historical demand for data. The many applications of solar UV data are discussed and the importance of making appropriate measurements and collecting sufficient supporting data for the analysis required of these applications is highlighted.
