[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Measurements performed at BTN (Icaro Camp) in the austral summers 1988 and 1993
with the UVISIR-2 sun-photometer built at the FISBAT-Institute (cfr. References
below). Aerosol optical depth was evaluated taking into account molecular
scattering and gaseous absorption as H2O, O3 and NO2 (cfr. references below).
Aerosol optical depths were evaluated at 8 channels centered in the 400 - 1050
