UV from HElioClim-3         - COMING SOON -

This service provides time series of UV-A, UV-B and Erythemal Irradiation values over a horizontal plane computed from the satellite-derived radiation database HelioClim-3. The geographical coverage corresponds to the Meteosat satellite field of view, i.e. covers Europe, Africa, Atlantic Ocean, Middle East. Spatial resolution is 3 km at Nadir and is increasing as soon as we get away from this point (see illustration on the right hand side). Temporal coverage of data is Feb. 2004 and updated every night.

This service uses the spectral irradiation model defined by the Belgian Meteorological Office and reported in ESRA (vol 2, page 158), applied to the HelioClim-1 database.
