What is UV radiation?

The SUN emits many types of radiation. At the earth's surface we receive mostly VISIBLE RADIATION (light) and INFRARED RADIATION (heat) ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION (UVR) is also present but we cannot see it or feel it. Ozone in the atmosphere absorbs much of the UVR before to CAUSE SUNBURN as well as more serious HEALTH PROBLEMS.
