Exploring temporal and latitudinal variation in the solar spectrum at ground level with the TUV model
I present examples of the use of Sasha Madronich's Quick TUV Calculator at UCAR together with the R packages in the R for Photobiology suite to produce plots of the solar spectrum and plots and tables of derived quantities and summaries. The article includes as supplements an instructional video on the use of the Quick TUV Calculator to simulate the solar spectrum at different geographic and time coordinates and under different atmospheric conditions including the thickness of the ozone column. The R code and data are supplied so that the code examples can be reproduced and adapted.
