Ozone and UV Monitoring Stations
The Met. Office measures ozone at Lerwick in the Shetlands using a Dobson spectrophotometer (until 2003 measurements were also made at Camborne in Cornwall). Stratospheric ozone monitoring is also undertaken by The University of Manchester at Reading University and The Valentia Observatory in the Irish Republic using Brewer spectrophotometers. Measurements of ultra-violet radiation are made at six sites in the UK.
