Subject
GRB 130315A: Swift/UVOT Upper Limits

From

S. T. Holland (STScI) and P. A. Evans (U Leicester)
report on behalf of the Swift/UVOT team:

     Swift/UVOT began settled observations of the field of GRB 130315A
starting 171 s after the BAT trigger (Evans et al., 2013, GCNC 14311).
We do not detect any new source within the XRT error circle (Page et al.,
2013, GCNC 14317).  Preliminary UVOT 3-sigma upper limits at this
position are presented below.

    The quoted upper limits have not been corrected for the Galactic
extinction along the line of sight to this burst of E_{B-V} = 0.32 mag
(Schlafly et al. 2011, ApJS, 737, 103).  The photometry is in the UVOT
photometric system (Breeveld et al. 2011, AIP Conf. Proc. 1358, 373).
The photometry is affected by the presence of a J = 15.4 mag 2MASS
source 10301128-5147395 located 2.3 arcsec south of the XRT position.
