|Comment||I certainly appreciate the extremely rapid response. Incredible, actually! Unfortunately it wasn't really what I was looking for. I was aware that elevation, albedo and pollution can effect UV index. But my central questions speaks to the seeming "UV index discrepancy between latitudes, despite when different locations at different times of the year, experience the same or similar noon heights. I don't think albedo, elevation and pollution account for the differences I'm describing. South Florida and New York likely have similar air pollution and certainly similar coastal elevations. Albedo would vary seasonally so perhaps that's a factor. In February South Florida is far greener and a greater absorber of solar insolation than NY in late March as the trees aren't in bloom.|
I can answer questions about radar and large scale meteorology. If a question looks like homework, I won't answer it.
I have been a forecaster for many years with a specialty in severe weather.
