Paper Abstract

Changes in ultraviolet (UV) radiation in Nanjing region were investigated in this study by using the simplified atmospheric radiation transfer computation model, the discrete-ordinate-method (DISORT) of radiation transfer, the climatic empirical model and observational method. The computational results of UV radiation were compared against observations showing that the computational values of UV radiation from the simplified model, and the DISORT and climatic methods were reasonable in agreement with observations.
