We analyze a methodology for measuring variations in total ozone abundance (TOA). We describe a thermally stabilized photometric system for making simultaneous high-accuracy measurements of TOA and the intensity of incoming solar radiation (ISR). Our equipment can operate unattended, and is fit ted with a two-axis sun-tracker. It enables the user to carry out coordinated investigations of weak, short-period variations of both TOA and ISR.
