Description
Total ozone ultraviolet detector is equivalent to using the sunlight ultraviolet (UV) imaging digital camera.Solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation emitted to the atmosphere of the Earth surface, some on the ultraviolet (UV) covered ozone uptake, that's exactly protects life from UV damage, partly reflecting surface and the atmosphere was to of total ozone generated UV image detector.UV image contains total ozone in the atmosphere, the content of information through scientific algorithm calculates the total content of atmospheric ozone.Oscar Niemeyer, meteorological satellite, 3 day 14 laps around the Earth, the global total ozone can be obtained.
