Nomograms for Biologically Effective UV
Regressions were determined establishing relationships between absolute UV-B irradiance (285-315 nm) and commonly used weighting functions for biological effectiveness. Nomograms were prepared from these regressions for both artificial and solar UV-B irradiance. Under well-defined conditions the nomograms may be used to rapidly compare data-sets which are derived from different weighting functions.
