A lot has been studied regarding our climate changes. The University of Toronto physicists have identified that reduced ultraviolet radiation will occur in “northern high latitude regions such as Siberia, Scandinavia and northern Canada”, while other regions will experience higher levels of UV.
Michaela Hegglin, the lead author of the study which was published in Nature Geoscience on 9/6/09, and University of Toronto physicist Theodor Shepherd used sophisticated computer models to determine how our climate changes will affect atmospheric conditions.
Many of the studies published have concentrated on the increase in UV radiation as a result of climate changes, but there are also affects from a decrease in UV radiation. Vitamin D is important to our health, and a decrease in UV radiation could impact that.
