World Ozone and Ultraviolet Radiation Data Centre (WOUDC)
browse graphic The World Ozone and Ultraviolet Radiation Data Centre (WOUDC) is one of five World Data Centres which are part of the Global Atmosphere Watch (GAW) program of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). The WOUDC is operated by the Experimental Studies Section of Environment Canada and is located in Toronto. The WOUDC began as the World Ozone Data Centre (WODC) in 1961 and in June 1992, Environment Canada agreed to a request from the WMO to add ultraviolet radiation data to the WODC. The Data Centre has since been renamed the World Ozone and Ultraviolet Radiation Data Centre (WOUDC) with the two component parts: the WODC and the World Ultraviolet Radiation Data Centre (WUDC).
