The Sun
  • is necessary for life on Earth.
  • It helps plants grow, and provides warmth and
    light.
  • Sunlight also helps people to be happy and
    healthy.

Introduction
8
The Sun
  • produces light and warmth but also Ultraviolet
    (UV) radiation. UV radiation cannot be seen or
    felt.
  • It is UV radiation, not the warmth or brightness
    of the sun, that causes changes to skin color,
    damage to eyes, and other bad health effects.

Introduction

UV radiation is not always the same it changes
based on
  • Time of day
  • Time of year
  • Location
  • Altitude
  • Weather
  • Reflection
  • Ozone Layer

Introduction
10
How do we measure UV radiation levels?
  • We use the UV Index Scale.
  • Reported on a scale of 1 -11.
