The offline UV product (OUV) contains the most important quantities of the Sun's radiation that can be harmful to life and materials on the Earth. These quantities include daily doses and maximum dose rates of integrated UV-B and UV-A radiation together with values obtained by different biological weighting functions, solar noon UV index and quality control flags. The product is calculated in a 0.5 degree regular grid and stored in a HDF5 file. The user requirement for the product accuracy is 20%. Several subproducts are included: UV daily dose: erythemal (CIE) weighting (OUV/DOSE_CIE), plant response weighting (OUV/DD_PLANT), DNA damage weighting (OUV/DD_DNA), SCUP-h weighting (OUV/DD_SCUPH), UVA weighting (OUV/DD_UVA), UVB weighting (OUV/DD_UVB). UV daily maximum dose rate: erythemal (CIE) weighting OUV/DSR_CIE, plant response weighting (OUV/DSR_PLANT), DNA damage weighting (OUV/DSR_DNA), SCUP-h weighting (OUV/DSR_SCUPH), UVA weighting (OUV/DSR_UVA), UVB weighting (OUV/DSR_UVB), erythemal (CIE) weighting (OUV/DSR_CIE), plant response weighting (OUV/DSR_PLANT), DNA damage weighting (OUV/DSR_DNA), SCUP-h weighting (OUV/DSR_SCUPH), UVA weighting (OUV/DSR_UVA), UVB weighting (OUV/DSR_UVB), and finally a UV Index (OUV/UVI).
