Global UV-B flux (sum of direct and diffuse radiations) data at four wavelengths 280, 290, 300 and 310 nm are recorded at several locations in India as part of Indian Middle Atm. Program (IMAP). The stations were selected considering distinct geog. features and possible influence of atm. aerosols and particulates on the ground reaching UV-B flux. Mysore (12.6°N, 76.6°E) was selected as a continental station largely free from any industrial pollution and large scale bio-mass burning. An examn. of the ground reaching UV-B flux at Mysore shows a marked diurnal and seasonal asymmetry. This can be attributed to the seasonally varying atm. aerosols and particulates which influence the scattering of UV-B radiation. The available parameterization models are used to reproduce the exptl. UV-B irradiance by varying the input parameters to the model. These results on the diurnal and seasonal variation of global UV-B flux from expt. and models are discussed. [on SciFinder(R)]
