Ultraviolet Instruments at the Mauna Loa Observatory. Three GLOBE ultraviolet instruments are busily making unattended measurements from the instrument desk over the NDSC Building at Hawaii’s Mauna Loa Observatory. These instruments were built by Dr. David Brooks of Drexel, using light-emitting diodes to detect and measure sunlight, a technique developed by Forest M. Mims III.
