Paper Abstract

An increase in the incidence of solar ultraviolet radiation upon oceans and lakes, as a consequence of anthropogenic diminishing of the ozone in the stratosphere, might well have a significant effect upon primary producers and other aquatic organisms in these waters. Existing data were inadequate for accurately estimating the penetration of biologically effective dosages of present and potential future levels of UV irradiance into various natural waters. An underwater spectroradiometer, designed specifically to measure spectral irradiance in the middle ultraviolet (MUV, 280-340 nm), has been designed, constructed and used to obtain ecologically important data.
