RIVAS, Miguel; LEIVA, Carlos and ROJAS, Elisa. Study of time series for 305 nm solar energy UV-B and stratospheric ozone layer thickness Arica in the north of Chile. Ingeniare. Rev. chil. ing. [online]. 2011, vol.19, n.2, pp. 168-173. ISSN 0718-3305. doi: 10.4067/S0718-33052011000200002.
In this paper, the results obtained by analyzing time series of ground level energy of the solar radiation in the 305 nm band and stratospheric ozone layer thickness are shown. The most relevant feature found is the independence of the variability of the ground level energy with respect to the short period variations of the ozone layer, being the meteorological local effects those which more heavily affect the variability.
