Australian Solar UV Data Request

ARPANSA maintains a network of dataloggers situated in Australian capital cities and in the Australian Antarctic territories. These dataloggers continuously record the solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR) levels at each site. This data is available as UV-Index values and graphs for major cities for the current day on the ARPANSA web site.

The calibrated UVR data is available for research and commercial use by request. There may be a cost associated with provision of this data depending on the complexity of your request.

In your request please state:
  • the name of your organisation
  • your position
  • your e-mail address
  • your phone number
  • the intended use of the data
  • the site(s) you require data for
  • the date range of the data required
  • the time range of the data required
  • the units the data is to be provided in
