Abstract

Understanding the amount of ultraviolet (UV) radiation received by human, plant, and animal organisms near the earth's surface is important to a wide range of fields such as cancer research, agriculture and forestry. The solar ultraviolet spectral irradiance at ground level was measured using the Avantes spectrometer for the period of January to March 2014 at Bangi (2°55N, 101°46E, 50 m above sea level) in Malaysia. These data were used to estimate the diurnal variation of UV irradiance (300 - 400 nm). The maximum irradiance of UV radiation was 45 W m-2 on horizontal surface. The maximum irradiance of UV received in the local noon time, and the minimum values of UV irradiance was received in the local morning time. It is found a bigger value of UV radiation was observed on clear sky in January. The estimation of daily flux average of UV irradiance was (921± 91) kJ m-2.
