Investigation of the erythemal ultraviolet trends in the greater Greece area: Implications to human health
Abstract:Among the most important aspects of the atmospheric pollution problem are the anthropogenic impacts on the stratospheric ozone layer, the related trends of the total ozone content drop and the solar ultraviolet radiation enhancement at the Earth's surface level. This paper presents an investigation of the spatial distribution of the erythemal ultraviolet radiation trends in Greece derived from 1979 to 1991 Nimbus 7 observations. In addition, it examines the adverse impact of the erythemal ultraviolet radiation on human health by employing in‐field measurements deduced from airborne instrumentation.
