Regressions were determined establishing relationships between absolute UV-B irradiance (285-315 nm) and commonly used weighting functions for biological effectiveness.  Nomograms were prepared from these regressions for both artificial and solar UV-B irradiance.  Under well-defined conditions the nomograms may be used to rapidly compare data sets which are derived from different weighting functions.
