Satellite-based calculation of global spectral irradiance
A global climatology of erythemal irradiance including the option to download
the numbers in tabular form is available
If you want to know how these numbers were calculated, you may have
a look at the following two posters which summarize related work:
In both posters, the calculated irradiance values are
compared with ground-based measurements.
- [Mayer and Madronich, 1998]
show a comparison of erythemal irradiance calculated from
datasets. Two completely different approaches
show surprisingly similar results. Larger differences were found for
the actinic flux which is also shown here.
- [Madronich et al., 1999]
show a climatology of erythemal irradiance, calculated using the
