Webb Analysis of Ground-based Observations Evidence of any changes in UV radiation measured at the ground comes from a small number of sites and these local observations cannot be applied to wider regions. Nonetheless, the available data sets tell a consistent story of anti-correlation with ozone, shown through a variety of analysis techniques.

Ozone loss has also been observed at mid-latitudes and in the Arctic, although not to the same extent as over Antarctica (see Chapter 1). A great deal of research has been invested in explaining the ozone losses since 1985, coupled with political action to prevent ever-increasing depletion,6 and the resulting increased UV-B at the Earth’s surface. However, observing and quantifying solar UV-B radiation has never been a routine part of atmospheric monitoring, and the vast majority of measurement sites in operation today were established post-1985 in response to the ozone scare.
