High School Students' Perceptions of How Major Global Environmental Effects Might Cause Skin Cancer.
Boyes, Edward; Stanisstreet, Martin
Journal of Environmental Education, v29 n2 p31-36 Win 1998
Quantifies beliefs of high school students about links between skin cancer and global environmental effects. Some students confused the action of heat rays with that of ultraviolet rays and also thought that raised temperatures are culpable. Only one in 10 held the scientifically correct model: that ozone depletion via higher penetration of ultraviolet rays may lead to skin cancer. (Author/PVD)
