The global solar UV Index

Year: 2007
From collection: Vital Ozone Graphics
Author: Emmanuelle Bournay, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
The Global Solar UV Index (UVI) is a simple measurement of the UV radiation level at the Earth's surface. It has been designed to indicate the potential for adverse health effects and to encourage people to protect themselves. The higher the Index value, the greater the potential for damage to the skin and eye, and the less time it takes for harm to occur.
