A Qualitative Study of Ozone and UVIndex over a Period at Bhopal (23.28° N, 77.47° E)

Authors(2) :-K. S. D. L. K. Prasad, N. V. KrishnaPrasad

The research interest in Ozone and UV Index studies from the scientific community and the general population has risen significantly in recent years because of the increased UV levels at the Earth's surface and depletion of ozone in the stratosphere. In this paper we concentrated on Ozone and UVIndex variation as diurnal and comparative diurnal over a periodicity of 5 years (2005-2015) at Bhopal.
