The Sunburn UV Network and its Applicability for Biological Predictions
Since 1973 a global network of Meters has been measuring the half-hourly dose of sunburn ultraviolet. From the original 10 stations there had been an increase by 1980 to almost 30 providing a Sunburn UV (SUV) climatology at a wide variety of latitudes from 38° S to 71° N, at altitudes from sea level to 3.4 KM., and in climates ranging from cold wet to hot arid.
