Summary
Abstract: This dataset also forms part of the set of State of the Environment (SOE) indicators.

INDICATOR DEFINITION
Daily measurements of solar Ultra-Violet radiation at Casey and Davis stations, reported in units of standard erythemal dose (SED).

TYPE OF INDICATOR
There are three types of indicators used in this report:
1.Describes the CONDITION of important elements of a system;
2.Show the extent of ... View entire text

Quality The amount of solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR) reaching the ground is controlled by physical factors including the height of the sun in the sky, time of day, cloud cover, ozone concentrations overhead and reflectance at the surface by ice and snow (albedo). In Antarctica, the combination of these factors leads to erythemal irradiances higher than those experienced in the tropics.
