Time series of the erythemal UV index & UV dose

The time evolution of the erythemal UV index at local solar noon and the daily erythemal UV dose (which is based on Meteosat cloud cover information) has been gathered together in a single (zip-ed) data file for a number of ground stations and places in Europe and Surinam. The following table lists the places in alphabetic order.

The place name in the left column itself is a link to a page showing a summary of monthly averages, yearly averages and climatologies of the erythemal UV index and UV dose. There is a clickable map of the places in the list below the table

Some further notes regarding the data file are given at the bottom of the page.
An example of a time series is given on a separate page.
If you would like a certain station or place to be added to this list, please let us know.

Notes

The list in the table above gives for each ground station the geographical coordinates (in degrees) and the altitude (in metres) of that station. If there is no ground station known in a place listed above, the coordinates are those of the inhabited place, and no elevation is given.

The UV index and UV dose are computed at a grid of 0.5 by 0.5 degrees and the values listed in the data files are values for the whole grid cell. The header of the data file specifies the centre coordinates of this grid cell, and the average grid cell elevation (which is, of course, in general not the same as the altitude of the station listed above!).

The time series data files give for each day between 1 August 1995 and 31 May 2003:

The data file reports as error for the ozone column the forecast error of the data assimilation used to find the ozone field. The error reported for the UV index and dose values is the error solely due to the error in the ozone column (errors in other elements of the algorithm which produces the UV index and UV dose are not taken into account).
