UltraViolet Index:  UltraViolet Index Craig S. Long National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration National Weather Service National Centers for Environmental Prediction Climate Prediction Center Outline:  Outline Background information on UV radiation Factors that affect UV radiation Health effects History of UV Index WMO/WHO Standards NWS UV Index Algorithm Current Future Products Background:  Background Definition: UV Index is a scaled erythemal (skin reddening) dose rate integrated over the UV-B and UV-A spectral bands. WMO guidelines require forecasts to be generated at least for next day at solar noontime. Background:  Background UltraViolet radiation has shorter/more powerful wavelengths than visible light. The most dangerous wavelengths of UV spectrum (UV-C) are completely absorbed in the stratosphere. Partial absorption of UV-B Minor absorption of UV-A UV Health Effects:  UV Health Effects Short Term overexposure to UV-B: UV-B causes sunburn (erythema) Sunburn can prevent your body from eliminating heat efficiently and can contribute to heat stress Long Term overexposure to UV-B: Several severe sun burns linked to melanoma One person dies of skin cancer per hour in the U.S. Sustained exposure linked to squamous and basal skin cancers – non lethal Cataracts of eyes Long Term overexposure to UV-A: Aging of skin Loss of elasticity (leathery look) Small amounts of UV radiation needed for Vitamin-D UV Health Effects:  UV Health Effects Background:  Background Factors affecting UV radiation from TOA to surface: Flux at TOA Earth – Sun distance Ozone (total column) Solar Zenith Angle Latitude, Day of Year Clouds Aerosols Elevation Surface Albedo No Snow Snow Slide8:  1980’s: Australia started reporting yesterday’s UV radiation levels in conjunction with huge sun protection campaign. 1992: Environment Canada began issuing a next day forecast of clear sky UV levels called ‘UV Index’. 1994: NWS and EPA begin issuing a next day forecast w/cloud effects. Use slightly different scale than Canadians. Allowed to use name ‘UV Index’. 1995: WMO holds “meeting of experts” to establish UV Index definition. 1997: WMO holds second “meeting of experts” to standardize UV Index name and forecasts 2000: WHO holds meeting to standardize health messages and exposure categories. History UV Index Definition:  UV Index Definition UV Index is a scaled erythemal dose rate integrated over the UV-B and UV-A spectral bands. Slide10:  UV Spectrum Slide11:  Weighted Irradiances Slide12:  EDR = Integral over the 290 to 400 nm range EDR = ~0.250 Watts/m2 or 250 mW/m2. Erythemal Dose Rate is the instantaneous flux of skin reddening UV radiation. UV Index is the EDR(W/m2) x 40. Or EDR(mW/m2)/25 UV Index = 10.0 Erythemal Dose Rate Slide13:  RTMs are needed to determine “clear sky” UV flux at surface under prescribed conditions. SZA Ozone Aerosols Elevation Albedo Several types of RTMs: multiple scattering spectral models fast spectral models empirical models RTMs are computationally expensive Operational forecasts of large gridded fields require the creation of Look Up Tables Radiative Transfer Models Slide14:  Results from Spectral Radiative Transfer Model Ozone Hole Tropics Extra Tropics Slide15:  Zonal Mean Ozone Slide16:  Zonal Mean UV Index (clear sky, sea level, no aerosol) Slide17:  Current UV Fcst Ozone Forecast from GFS Albedo = 5% (no snow) Elevation (6% per Km) Aerosol – clean atmosphere (AOD=0.2, SSA=1.0) Clouds amounts from MOS Products: 58 city bulletin Clear sky UV Index on global 1x1 grid Cloudy UV Index for CONUS and AK grids UV Index Forecast Future UV Fcst Ozone Forecasts from GFS Albedo no snow = 3% Snow = >30% (GFS Albedo) Elevation 9% 1st km 7% 2nd km 6% 3rd km Aerosol Variable from climatology Cloud attenuation from GFS shortwave code Products: 58 city bulletin Global Cloudy and Clear Sky grids Slide18:  UV Index Forecast 3 Forecasts in one Ozone Forecast Cloud Forecast Aerosol Forecast (not there yet) Slide19:  NCEP GFS Ozone Assimilation Slide20:  Global Ozone Field Ozone Hole Slide21:  Global UV Index Slide22:  Elevation Effect Binghamton, NY Lubbock, TX Boulder, CO Jackson, WY Yellowstone, WY Breckenridge, CO Slide23:  Surface has low albedo is UV ~ 3% Sand is more reflective ~30% Snow is most reflective ~30-90% Albedo Slide24:  Albedo (snow and sand) Slide25:  Aerosols scatter and absorb UV radiation Reduce direct and Increase diffuse Global is usually attenuated Aerosol parameters include: Aerosol Optical Depth Single Scattering Albedo Ratio of scattered /(scattered + absorbed) Asymmetry factor Forward scattering vs backward scattering Aerosol Effects Slide26:  Aerosol Optical Depth Single Scattering Albedo Aerosol Climatology Slide27:  Aerosol Effect Slide28:  Cloud Forecasts Current Method: MOS clouds MOS fcsts Pct Clear, Scattered, Broken, Overcast Regression determined by comparing MOS fcsts against observed cloud transmission Clear (0-1 tenths): 100% transmission Scattered(2-5 tenths): 89% Broken(6-8 tenths): 72% Overcast(9-10 tenths): 31% Proposed Method: From GFS Shortwave scheme UV Transmission = UVCloud/UVNo Cloud Slide29:  UV Attenuation from GFS Clouds Slide30:  Clouds and UV Attenuation Slide31:  Clouds and UV Attenuation Slide32:  Clouds and UV Attenuation Slide33:  Clouds and UV Attenuation Slide34:  Clouds and UV Attenuation Slide35:  Products: MOS Locations for CONUS and AK Slide36:  Products: 58 City Bulletin Slide37:  Products: Cloudy UV Index Output Grids Eta Grid 207 Eta Grid 211 Slide38:  Products: UV Index Contoured Map Slide39:  Products: Global UV Index Slide40:  UV Index “to do” list Generate and validate global noon time UV Index fcsts EMC must operationally output UVcloud and UVno-cloud surface fluxes Generate UV Index forecasts out to day 5 Generate UV Index forecasts at both 00Z and 12Z cycles Generate daily UV dosage Diurnal variation Slide41:  fini
