||Data acquired in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina from a Yankee Environmental Systems UVB-1 pyranometer, an Eppley Laboratory Precession Spectral Pyranometer, and a SCI-TEC Brewer Spectrophotometer were used in conjunction with hourly cloud observations from the National Weather Service station located at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport to study the attenuation of UV-B radiation. A simple polynomial was derived from these data taken over a four month period which predicts UV-B attenuation as a function of cloud cover and atmospheric transmissivity.
