nightsurfer on 2009-12-11An acknowledged benefit of exposure to ultraviolet radiation is synthesis of vitamin D in human skin. Here we have defined a standard vitamin D dose based upon recommended requirements for vitamin D, and present a simplified web-based tool that enables the user to calculate associated exposure times for any time and place ( http://nadir.nilu.no/~olaeng/fastrt/VitD-ez_quartMED.html). This www page is a simplified version of the more complex web tool ( http://nadir.nilu.no/~olaeng/fastrt/VitD_quartMED.html). The simplified www page is convenient for users unfamiliar to radiative transfer modelling, because the model input is limited and more intuitive.
