Comparison of the plant damaging spectral ultraviolet radiation between three locations in the eastern USA in the year 2000
Kimlin, Michael G. & Taylor, T.E. (2003) Comparison of the plant damaging spectral ultraviolet radiation between three locations in the eastern USA in the year 2000. Agricultural and Forest Meteorology, 120(1-4), pp. 83-100.
The National Ultraviolet Monitoring Centre (NUVMC) maintains a network of Brewer Spectrophotometers that collect spectrally resolved, full sky ultraviolet (UV) irradiance values throughout the day. Using these data, an investigation into the spectral UV irradiances at several Brewer locations has been carried out by employing plant action spectra that represent a generalized response of plants to UV exposure. Analysis was performed for the year 2000 on the Chicago, Virgin Islands, and Shenandoah Brewer sites of the Eastern USA, which are of varying latitude, elevation, and atmospheric composition. The weighted and unweighted UV data grouped in SZA ranges of 10° increments is analysed seasonally, highlighting the seasonal atmospheric differences between the sites. Results obtained in this paper suggest that UV data, when weighted with certain plant action spectra, show the potential sensitivity of plants to small changes in UV irradiances.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
