Revaluation of the series of solar UV-B radiation data
Series: (D-48), 1996, pp.81-90
An analysis of the UV-B radiation measured by Robertson-Berger (RB) meter over the period 1975-1992 at Belsk, Poland, is presented. Analysis of the data showed that the change of calibration procedure introduced a systematic shift into the series. The aim of the study is to determine a relationship between the two sets of data obtained over the two periods at which different calibration procedure of the RB meter was applied. An adjustment procedure is proposed and adjustment coefficient is calculated. The series was also corrected for temperature effects.
Total ozone deficiencies at Belsk, Poland, during the summer season
Series: (D-48), 1996, pp.91-100
The total ozone values at Belsk, Poland, have been analyzed for the period 1963-1997 with a special attention paid to the summer seasonal (May-August) means. Total ozone in this season distinctly decreases, especially in the last two decades. Differences between winter-spring (December-March) means ozone values and those of summer season distinctly decrease in the period 1964-1997 (about 3% per decade). An analysis of seasonal ozone departures from their long-term average indicates that an expectation of the low ozone values in summer depending on their values in the winter-spring season is supported mainly for the strongest ozone declines. The departures from the long-term mean values in the both considered seasons are positively correlated, but their correlation coefficient of 0.5, although statistically significant, is not sufficiently elevated to indicate a dominant role of the winter-spring ozone values for the summer ozone values.
Mean summer ozone values at Belsk decrease not only as seasonal average but also in particular months. This decline is statistically significant for all summer months but only in the period 1980-1997. Analyzed departures of minimum ozone daily values from the long-term monthly ozone average in summer months indicate that these values decrease in the period 1980-1997, this decline being statistically significant only in May and July. This fact, as well as the occurrence of numerous summer months with daily minimum ozone values by 10-15% lower than the monthly long-term average, is of particular importance for concerns of possible excessive solar UV radiation flux to the Earth surface.
The record low total ozone at Belsk: 1 January 1998
Series: (D-48), 1996, pp.101-114
Total ozone measurements taken by means of the Dobson spectrophotometer No. 84 at Belsk, Poland, were analyzed for the period 15 December 1997 through 15 January 1998. The record low daily total ozone (163 D) was observed on 1 January 1998. The satellite overpass total ozone for Belsk, inferred from the TOMS (on board of the Earth Probe satellite) measurements, showed also a deep depletion in total ozone. Using the satellite total ozone data, the passage of the ozone "mini-hole" across Europe from 30 Decembere 1997 through 2 January 1998 was demonstrated. The origin of this "hole" has been preliminary discussed. It is suggested that the total ozone depletion that appeared around 1 January 1998 over Belsk was mainly caused by a specific atmospheric dynamics, not by chlorine chermistry related to the polar stratospheric clouds effects.
Multiscale variability of total ozone taken at Belsk, Poland (1964-1997): A wavelet analysis
Series: (D-48), 1996, pp.115-126
The standard wavelet algorithm has been applied to the total ozone (TO3) data taken at Belsk, Poland, from January 1964 through December 1997. This enables us to delineate three basic modes of oscillations present in the Belsk data. These are: low- (time scale longer than 1 year), mid- (time scale of about 1 year), and high-frequency oscillations (time scale of about few weeks up to few months). To infer year-to-year changes in the modes of the Belsk's TO3 oscillations, several statitstical characteristics (mean, standard deviation, maximum value, minimum value) of each mode annual course have been examined for the period 1964-1997. It has been found that the TO3 yearly histogram drifts towards lower values, changing its shape. In the 1964-1997 period the standard deviations have been decreasing and the maxima drifted towards lower values faster than the mean value. Thus, the TO3 yearly histogram tends to be more compact and more asymmetric. This change is mostly forced by the trends in the mid- and high-frequency mode of the ozone oscillations.
