Paper Abstract

The ultraviolet radiation (UVR) radiometry of solar simulated radiation in a long-term photocarcinogenesis project is described. The methods used were (a) a phototherapy radiometer, (b) an electronic integrating dosimeter, (c) indirect spectroradiometry,and (d) polysulphone and naladixic film badge dosimeters for UV-B (280-315 nm) and UV-A (315-400 nm) radiation, respectively. The merits of the various methods are discussed. The importance of reliable and practical UVR radiometry is emphasised.
