NCAR/ACD TUV: Tropospheric Ultraviolet & Visible Radiation Model
Entry ID: UCAR_TUV

[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Tropospheric Ultraviolet-Visible Model (TUV) model is used over
the wavelength range 121 - 750 nm, for calculating the spectral
irradiance, the spectral actinic flux, photodissociation coefficients
(J-values), and biologically effective irradiance (dose rates, doses).
The code has a number of features including

- separate direct and diffuse contributions,
- easy loading of weighting ... View entire text
