Data files can also be downloaded with a script, for example, using wget:
     wget https://www.temis.nl/uvradiation/v2.0/msr2/nc/2020/uvdvc2020_msr_world.nc
     wget https://www.temis.nl/uvradiation/v2.0/msr2/nc/2018/uvddc2018_msr_europe.nc
where the first 5 characters of the data file name (such as uvdvc) is the prefix
listed in the last column of the table above.
