Ultraviolet B (UVB) – a type of sunlight. The
ozone in the stratosphere, high above the Earth, filters out
the ultraviolet B rays and keeps them from reaching the Earth. Ultraviolet
B exposure has been associated with skin cancer, eye cataracts,
and damage to the environment. Thinning of the ozone
layer in the stratosphere results in increased amounts of ultraviolet
B reaching the Earth.
