Résumé

The downwelling solar irradiance received at ground level has many effects on many aspects, from climate to biomass or human health. There is a need for an accurate knowledge of the spectral distribution of the solar irradiance anytime anywhere. This simple algorithm has been developed that estimates the spectral distribution of the solar irradiance at surface from the sole knowledge of the total solar irradiance at surface and the top of the atmosphere. The spectral distribution ranges from 280 nm to 1000 nm. The report also documents the published validations that have been made against ground measurements and other sources in UV. The report provides a partial list of articles making use of this algorithm in several domains related to the human health. Though most of the publications deal with UV radiation, the algorithm can be applied to any spectral interval.
