									               First announcement                                                          Scientific Program

The Physikalisch-Meteorologische Observatorium Davos was                  Topics
established in 1907 by Carl Dorno (1865 - 1942). He founded the field
                                                                              • Solar UV measurements and modelling
of bioclimatology through his investigations of the Davoser Climate,
including the very first measurements of solar UV radiation, also                  -   Instrumental developments
known as "Dornostrahlung".
                                                                                   -   Case studies (factors affecting UV radiation)
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the observatory a conference
dedicated to solar UV radiation research will be held at the Congress              -   Modelling of surface UV radiation
Centre Davos, Switzerland from 18 to 20 September 2007. The                        -   Satellite retrieved surface UV radiation
conference will bring together scientists interested in solar UV
radiation, with topics ranging from measurements and modelling, to                 -   UV reconstruction techniques
the influence of UV radiation on humans and climate.                          • UV radiation climatology and trends
                                                                              • Climate change and UV radiation

Scientific Committee                                                          • UV radiation effects on humans and the biosphere
