Abstract

We compare the UV-B global and direct irradiances computed with a radiative transfer model (discrete ordinate method) and measured during a European intercomparison campaign in Greece in July 1991, with clear sky. The agreement between the model and the measurements is within 6%. The sensitivity of the model to the accuracy of the input parameters as well as the potential of modeling for instrument calibration is discussed.
