Paper Abstract

A method has been developed for measuring the biologically effective dose (BED) of solar radiation. The method applies phage T7 as a biosensor in a monitoring system. The work presents a series of dose measurements caused by direct and global irradiation. Comparisons are made of the results obtained in the same time in different places in Hungary in 1992 and 1993. A doubling of the measured BED was found which can not be explained with the ozone depletion only. An interpretation of phage T7 dose as well as transformation of the results into MED are presented. The influence of the photosensitization as an additive damage is discussed as well.
