The Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) has the longest time series of globally distributed estimates of UV irradiance at the Earth's surface. The proper interpretation of TOMS estimated irradiances relies on well-calibrated and wellmaintained spectrometers at the Earth's surface. In this study, daily erythemal irradiances measured by a Brewer spectrophotometer at the island of Lampedusa (35.5°N, 12.6°E), in the Mediterranean are compared with TOMS observations in the period January 1998 to August 200…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
