Abstract : Global and diffuse solar UV have been measured throughout 1972 and 1973 at the Joint Tropical Research Unit in Queensland and at the Explosives Research and Development Establishment, Waltham Abbey, Essex. The UV at 45 degrees facing the equator has also been measured at both sites. The results are discussed; in particular the relative importance of the diffuse and the direct components of solar UV is established and the factors which affect the UV content of solar radiation are indicated. From a consideration of the results the feasibility of estimating the UV dose solely from a knowledge of the total solar radiation is confirmed. (Author)
