The effects of environmental UV-B radiation on health and ecosystemsFunded under: FP3-ENV 1C, FP4-ENV 2C
One of the great unknowns in the current unplanned experiment of mankind on stratospheric ozone depletion is the eventual impact of enhanced ultraviolet-B (UV-B) radiation on health and the environment. Good environmental policy requires a sound scientific basis and the European Commission has been active at both policy and scientific levels in aiming to minimize such impacts. Thus far, we have been remarkably successful in increasing our understanding of the physical and chemical processes underlying ozone depletion and now that we have a clearer idea of the possible extent of the damage it is time to address the consequences of that damage. This publication represented the proceedings of the First European Symposium on Environmental UV Radiation which was convened with the aim of promoting the establishment of a strong European UV research community not only through the sharing of ideas and information but also through the development of new groups, new synergies, and new directions for Community research.
