Could the Earth's surface Ultraviolet irradiance be blamed for the global warming?(II) —-Ozone layer depth reconstruction via HEWV effect [EPA]

It is suggested by Chen {\it et al.} that the Earth’s surface Ultraviolet irradiance ($280-400$ nm) could influence the Earth’s surface temperature variation by “Highly Excited Water Vapor” (HEWV) effect. In this manuscript, we reconstruct the developing history of the ozone layer depth variation from 1860 to 2011 based on the HEWV effect. It is shown that the reconstructed ozone layer depth variation correlates with the observational variation from 1958 to 2005 very well ($R=0.8422$, $P>99.9\%$). From this reconstruction, we may limit the spectra band of the surface Ultraviolet irradiance referred in HEWV effect to Ultraviolet B ($280-320$ nm).
