Ultraviolet radiation index
The Macquarie Island UV sensor is currently offline for routine maintenance and will be available again soon.
We have a network of ultraviolet radiation (UV) detectors in cities around Australia. The UV data is collected continuously by detectors that respond to UV in a manner similar to human skin and updated in this chart every minute.
Use the chart above to find out what the UV index is at our measurement sites and what time the UV index will be at its highest.
A guide on how to use the UV radiation index charts explains the features of the chart above.
