The Significance of Ultraviolet Radiation for Aquatic Animals

The total amount of energy reaching the outer limit of the Earth’s atmosphere is defined as the solar constant. This is an inappropriate name for a magnitude that is known to vary over time, but it very much reflects the quotidian perception that the sun’s energy is virtually unchangeable. Such perceptions have started to change. To find the reasons for this change, we do not have to look at sun itself, but to alterations occurring within our own atmosphere. First, the release of greenhouse gases has increased the capacity of the atmosphere to capture heat. Second, ozone depletion has decreased the atmosphere’s ability to filter out some of the most damaging wavelengths within the ultraviolet region.
