Modelling of the ground-reaching UV-B flux (280-320 nm) in the experimental studies of this biologically harmful radiation is important from the point of validating the experimental measurements and also to predict the temporal and geographic variations of the UV-B erythema due to stratospheric ozone depletion brought by anthropogenic causes. The erythemal dose is computed as the convolution of the global UV-B flux with a suitable action spectra for human skin. More than one definition of erythemal dose unit (in terms of the absolute energy content) is currently used in UV-B studies and thus there is a need to standardize the erythemal dose unit- The global UV-B flux data from the UV-B photometer radiometer studies at Mysore (12.6-degrees-N, 76.6-degrees-E) and also computed from a UV-B irradiance model are used to estimate the seasonal variation of erythemal dose.
