Short summary
Solar spectral UV irradiance data measured by the Brewer #037 spectroradiometer in Sodankylä, Finland, in 1990–2014 were examined for their quality flags given by the quality assurance (QA) tools of the European UV DataBase (EUVDB). Statistical analysis on the flags was performed, and five cases were investigated in detail. The results can be used in further development of the quality control/QA tools and selection of cases of exceptional atmospheric conditions for process studies.
