Abstract : An ultraviolet interference-filter spectrophotometer (UVS) has been used to obtain solar UV fluxes and ozone overburdens at high altitude from several flight series on a WB57F aircraft. The data from four DOT Climatic Impact Assessment Program (CIAP) Airstream flight series have been reduced to final UV flux and ozone overburden values and the results are presented in this report. A total of about 53-1/2 hours of usable data is given in tabular form. These data are of use for the interpretation of other measurements made on the same flight series, and for baseline measurements for future long term monitoring programs. (Author)
