Aplicación del Método Dobson a la estimación del ozono total utilizando un radiómetro ultravioleta

J. C, J. Salamanca


A procedure to compute total ozone estimation by applying Dobson method, with a data set obtained from a global ultraviolet radiometer -GUV2511 Biospherical Instruments- is presented here. Dobson method is applied by using four different spectral lines in the UV-B range that are measured by the radiometer. This procedure involves a proposal for a calculation of direct -and diffuse-spectral radiation from a global spectral radiation measurement. The enhancement of this total ozone calculation model can also provide elements to study clouds behavior in tropical high mountain zones. In our case, it is affected furthermore by the intertropical confluence zone.
