The UV Index and Sun Protection

This site from the Government of Canada provides educational materials on the UV index (created from data from thirteen monitoring sites across Canada), UV radiation, ozone, and issues in weather and ozone depletion. It is intended to create awareness of health risks of UV radiation by offering activities for children and reading materials for adults on the matter. A summary of UV radiation and ozone science, information on ozone and radiation monitoring activities by Canada and the US, and links to data sets and publications are given. Among the "bells and whistles" are a printable poster and coloring pages for children and RealPlayer movies.
