Short summary
The surface ultraviolet radiation product generated operationally in the framework of the Satellite Application Facility on Ozone and Atmospheric Chemistry Monitoring of the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites is described. The product is derived from measurements of polar orbiting satellites and contains important quantities of solar radiation that can be harmful to life on the Earth and affect atmospheric reactions related to air quality and climate change.
