And for simulations of both UV and visible solar spectral irradiance at
time or location you might be interested in the following Web site at
the National Center for Atmospheric Research (developed by Sasha
Madronich and his colleagues)


This site permits computations of irradiance in W m-2 nm-1 directly on
the Web using
the Quick TUV option although the "Biological" simulations are limited
to 280 to 420 nm.  The simulations for "Atmospheric Science" range all
way out to 725 nm.  The user can modify inputs such as latitude,
ozone layer thickness and time of day. The TUV model can be downloaded
at this site
as well.
