GRB 100725A: Swift/UVOT Upper Limits

T. A. Pritchard (PSU) and C. B. Markwardt (CRESST/GSFC/UMD)
report on behalf of the Swift/UVOT team:

The Swift/UVOT began settled observations of the field of GRB 100725A
85 s after the BAT trigger (Markwardt et al., GCN Circ. 10979).
No optical afterglow consistent with the XRT position
(Evans et al., GCN Circ. 10985) is detected in the initial UVOT
exposures.  Preliminary 3-sigma upper limits using the UVOT
photometric system (Poole et al. 2008, MNRAS, 383, 627) for the first
finding chart (FC) exposure and subsequent exposures are:

w2                 602        12552         1396 >21.2

The values quoted above are not corrected for the Galactic extinction
due to the reddening of E(B-V) = 0.05 in the direction of the burst
(Schlegel et al. 1998).
