Help with uv light

  • #1
Hi everybody! I was hoping I could get some insight on how to calculate the energy of uva and uvb radiation at elevation levels of 0m in equatorial regions and at a lattitude of 35° N at 4500m in watts per square meter. Specifically, light in the range of 300-420nm. Any help would be appreciated. Specifically I'm looking at 300-420nm

The amount of uv actually received will be highly dependent on local weather and other factors such as which season of the year.
It seems to me that this exercise would be better undertaken by actually measuring uv at these locations rather than trying to calculate it.

I'm looking for a maximum, so I want to assume no cloud cover or intervening weather conditions.

if you cannot find any online references by NOAA or other atmospheric research institute

then rootones' comment is your obvious choice for any meaningful figures
