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.
