The report describes the results of a workshop sponsored by EPA to address the issue of UV-B monitoring. Various Federal agencies, private organizations, and university representatives participated in a three-day workshop that addressed issues related to status and trends monitoring, monitoring to support aquatic research, monitoring to support agricultural research, and monitoring to support health effects research. General conclusions were that UV-B monitoring was required in order to adequately conduct research described above. Improvement of calibration procedures and equipment was mandatory. Sampling (scanning) times for research purposes should be from one-half to one hour. General improvements in measurement systems, including ancillary measurements, was needed. Close coordination between all organizations conducting UV-B research should be encouraged.
