We used MODIS observations to retrieve number concentration of cloud droplets (Nd) at cloud lower boundary during spring 2018–2020 for the Moscow region. Looking through the similar synoptic situations of the northern clear air advection, we obtained Nd within the limits of 200–300 cm−3. During the lockdown period, with similar northern advection c...

UV radiation is calculated for Russian regions where anomalies of the total ozone content were observed in the first quarter of 2016. Winter ozone depletion in northern regions of Siberia, even to the levels of the so-called ozone hole, is not critical. However, much weaker ozone reduction in the early spring can lead to dangerous levels of erythem...

The UV Index was established more than 20 years ago as a tool for sun protection and health care. Shortly after its introduction, UV Index monitoring started in several countries either by newly acquired instruments or by converting measurements from existing instruments into the UV Index. The number of stations and networks has increased over the...
