In the present paper a description is given of the calibration of a selective photochemical, ultra-violet dosage intensity meter against a balanced thermocouple and filter radiometer, used as a standard. Data are given of the ultra-violet intensities of solar radiation in various localities at various elevations at various stations in Europe and upon the ocean. The measurements show a high ultra-violet reflection from clean fresh snow. The ultra-violet intensities over the ocean are not
