Paper Abstract

A tutorial review is provided of UV radiation transport in the atmosphere-ocean system. Emphasis is placed on the basic physical principles involved rather than on mathematical/numerical aspects. To illustrate the application of the theory, the effects of an ozone depletion on UV irradiance at the surface are discussed. A comparison of measured and predicted UV penetration into the ocean under the Antarctic ozone hole is also provided.
