Resumen

RIVAS, Miguel; ROJAS, Elisa; CORTES, Juan  y  SANTANDER, Elisa. EFECTO DE LA ALTURA EN LA RADIACIÓN SOLAR ULTRAVIOLETA EN ARICA NORTE DE CHILE. Rev. Fac. Ing. - Univ. Tarapacá [online]. 2002, vol.10, pp.59-62. ISSN 0718-1337.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-13372002001000007.

In this work, using transfer radiative models, we present results obtained when calculating the levels of solar ultraviolet radiation that reach Arica at sea level, as well as altitudes of 4.500 m above sea level. (Lat.: 18º 49' S; Long. 70º 19' W). The level of solar ultraviolet radiation that reaches the earth varies due to multiple factors, such as the geographical location (latitude), the thickness of the ozone layer present above, the cloud cover and the altitude above sea level. Locations at both sea level and at 4500 m above sea level can be found in northern Chile. These locations are specially adequate for the study of the effects of altitude in the increase of solar ultraviolet radiation. This topic is relevant because a great number of people, having jobs related to copper mining and tourism, who often travel moving from places that are located at sea level to settings that are situated at 5000 m above sea level, are exposed to significantly increased solar ultraviolet radiation.

Palabras clave : Ozone; radiation; ultraviolet.
