Summary
Abstract: Data provides the date, time and 10 min cumulative erythemal irradiance at Davis Station for downwelling solar radiation and the irradiance at depth beneath neutral density screen (ND-polythene) and 3.3, 5.5, and 9.0 mm borosilicate glass. These light treatments simulated watercolumn depths of 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, and 3.6 m depth (calculated using Beer's Law and the average UV transmittance of Antarctic seawater at 4 ice-edge sites). A no erythemal UV control (transmittance greater than 375 nm) was also used in which samples were incubated beneath UV-stabilised polycarbonate.

Quality Data were obtained using a Macam, portable, double grating spectroradiometer that was routinely calibrated against deuterium and tungsten lamps. These lamps are calibrated to international standards (National Physics Laboratory). The spectral irradiance for downwelling solar radiation was measured at 5 min intervals between 280 and 400 nm wavelength. The irradiance at each nanometer was ... View entire text
