UGC Objetcs in SCUSS
The SCUSS u filter is similar to the SDSS u band. The below link is the SCUSS u filter response in ASCII, where the 3rd column includes the filter transmission, CCD efficiency and atmospheric extinction at airmass of 1.3.

The South Galactic Cap U-band Sky Survey is an international cooperative project between National Astronomical Observatories, Chinese Academy of Sciences and Steward
Observatory, University of Arizona, USA. We plan to use the Bok 90-inch telescope of the Steward Observatory.
