The issue of the variation of the surface ultraviolet (UV) environment on Mars was investigated with particular emphasis being placed on the interpretation of data in a biological context. A UV model has been developed to yield the surface UV irradiance at any time and place over the Martian year. Seasonal and diurnal variations were calculated and dose rates evaluated. Biological interpretation of UV doses is performed through the calculation of DNA damage effects upon phage T7 and Uracil… CONTINUE READING
