UV index for local noon

The clear sky UV index is calculated in near real time using assimilated total ozone from the GOME-2 instruments onboard the Metop-B and Metop-C satellites. The data presented here are based on Metop-C data. The Metop-B results can be delivered upon request.

The ECMWF total cloud cover forecast is used to calculate the UV index at the expected cloud cover conditions. When used for health protection information the clear sky UV index should be applied. Click on the 'Regional' links and see UV-index maps and numbers for selected locations.
