UV Exposure Index and Monitoring Network
||Most EPA libraries have a fiche copy filed under the call number shown. Check with individual libraries about paper copy.
||EPA's UV program will focus on improving the Agency's ability to assess human exposures and effects, including: (1) to enhance the accuracy, reliability and applicability of the UV Ultraviolet Index and the predictive algorithms upon which it is based; (2) to operate EPA's UV monitoring network in order to verify and improve the Index calculations and predictions and to acquire reliable data for convolving with human effects 'action curves'; and (3) to exchange data and QA/QC procedures with other UV researchers, both within EPA, in other U.S. Agencies and institutions, and in the international community. The focus of EPA's efforts will be human exposure and effects, combined with a concerted effort at QA/QC.
