Parisi, Alfio (2002) Effects of tree shade on solar ultraviolet exposures to humans. In: UV Radiation and its Effects: an Update 2002, 26-28 March 2002, Christchurch, New Zealand.
[Abstract]: This paper investigates how much solar UV protection is provided by the shade of Australian trees and the anatomical distribution of personal UV exposures in the shade of these trees. Personal UV exposures in tree shade are of a high enough value to require additional UV reduction strategies. A well planned strategy using a combination of protective methods can minimize the level of exposure to harmful solar UV radiation in tree shade.
