Short summary
To reduce computational costs, ECCC's new method to calculate the UV Index involves scaling and weighting the irradiance contribution of four low-res UV broadbands currently produced by the GEM forecast model. A high-res irradiance spectrum was produced using Cloud-J to create simulated GEM broadbands to calibrate the original GEM broadbands. The scaled GEM broadbands are then weighted accordingly so that the resultant UV Index field emulates the high-res UV Index field calculated from Cloud-J.
