    Abstract: We report on the result of intensive ultraviolet spectral monitoring of the Seyfert 1 galaxy NGC 3783. The nucleus of NGC 3783 was observed with the International Ultraviolet Explorer satellite on a regular basis for a total of 7 months, once every 4 days for the first 172 days and once every other day for the final 50 days. Significant variability was observed in both continuum and emission-line fluxes. The light curves for the continuum fluxes exhibited two well-defined local minima or ''dips,'' the first lasting less than or similar to 20 days and the second less than or similar to 4 days, with additional episodes of relatively rapid flickering of approximately the same amplitude. As in the case of NGC 5548 (the only other Seyfert galaxy that has been the subject of such an intensive, sustained monitoring effort), the largest continuum variations were seen at the shortest wavelengths, so that the continuum became ''harder'' when brighter. The variations in the continuum occurred simultaneously at all wavelengths (Delta t <2 days). Generally, the amplitude of variability of the emission lines was lower than (or comparable to) that of the continuum. Apart from Mg II (which varied little) and N V (which is relatively weak and badly blended with Ly alpha), the light curves of the emission lines are very similar to the continuum light curves, in each case with a small systematic delay or ''lag'' As for NGC 5548, the highest ionization lines seem to respond with shorter lags than the lower ionization lines. The lags found for NGC 3783 are considerably shorter than those obtained for NGC 5548, with values of(formally) similar to 0 days for He II + O III], and similar to 4 days for Ly alpha and C IV. The data further suggest lags of similar to 4 days for Si IV + O IV] and 8-30 days for Si III] + C III]. Mg II lagged the 1460 Angstrom continuum by similar to 9 days, although this result depends on the method of measuring the line flux and may in fact be due to variability of the underlying Fe II lines. Correlation analysis further shows that the power density spectrum contains substantial unresolved power over timescales of less than or similar to 2 days, and that the character of the continuum variability may change with time.
