Physical geography discussion (85 words)

Topic: UV Index

As you have learned from reading this chapter. UV radiation can be very harmful to humans, regardless of your skin tone. The ozone layer helps protect us against the harmful UV rays, which is why it is so important that we protect it from CFC’s and other pollutants that deplete it.  

For this discussion, you are going to determine what the UV index is for your city, review the guidelines for exposure, and reflect on if your actions are in line with the guidelines. See the specific directions below.  You only need to make one discussion post; you do not need to respond to any of your classmates.
