|Abstract||From a high-altitude station, Nainital, India (29.4°N, 79.5°E, 1958 masl), locatedin the central part of lower Himalayas, the observations made during December 2004using a pair of Sun photometers (Microtops II) at wavelengths ranging from 305 to1020 nm are reported. The observed parameters are the direct solar UV irradiance,column ozone, water vapor, and aerosol optical depths (AOD). The results arepresented for the full day clear-sky conditions that prevailed for about 16 days duringthe whole month. It is found that Nainital is a comparatively pristine site with averageAOD at 500 nm ranging between 0.03 and 0.09 and Angstrom exponent generallyclose to 1. The high AOD values occurred on 2 and 25 December due to winds frompopulated north Indian plains as revealed by the Hybrid Single-Particle LagrangianIntegrated Trajectory (HYSPLIT) backward trajectory model. The total column ozonevaries between 251 and 308 DU during the entire period of observations. Themaximum diurnal UV irradiance values in the 2.4 nm bandwidth centered at 305.5,312.5, and 320.0 nm varied between 0.027 and 0.049, 0.15 and 0.20, and 0.29 and0.37 W m-², respectively. The measured UV irradiances are compared with theTropospheric Ultraviolet Visible (TUV) radiation model and show a good agreement.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project.
