UV meters and understanding of the UV Index by university students

Previous research has shown that understanding of the ultraviolet index (UVI) remains low in Western Australia despite long term education programs and broadcast of the UV index through various media. This project aims to investigate understandings of the UVI associated with a fixed UV meter in the physical environment where sun exposure is incurred. It aims to determine whether there has been a change in understanding of the UVI by students on campus following the installation of a fixed UV meter.
