In biology, the focus is often on epidemiological studies:
What is the distribution of UV radiation strength across a tree population?
Which UV radiation strengths are effective at various water depths?
How significant are latitude dependencies with regard to the UV exposure of various species and ecosystems
In medicine, there are numerous questions:
relating to dermatological, immunological and epidemiological issues which call for the precise determination of UV radiation.
A special problem, namely the measurement of radiation with respect to persons, can be solved by the VioSpor dosimeter, which only weighs around 10 g.A
In environmental research
...UV measurements are frequently required in connection with such fields as air pollution and ozone reduction.
