ARPANSA

Displays Ultraviolet radiation index information from ARPANSA for an Australian city to help determine what level of sun protection or avoidance is necessary.

The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) is the Australian Government's primary authority on radiation protection and nuclear safety.

Interpreting the information:

  • Index is specified in units of Standard Erthermal Dose.
  • If the UV index is less than 3 you can safely stay outdoors with minimal protection.
  • If the UV index is 3 or more: wear sun protective clothing, a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, seek shade.
