The effects of UV rays have been studied extensively. However, you might be able to find some specific area which has not been addressed. Good luck.
 
How about 'The different types of UV Rays according to its effects'?

I don't really think theres really any different types of UV rays. Ultraviolet light is itself, a sub-catagory of the electromagnetic spectrum so I wouldn't htink it had further sub-catagories.
 
I have read something that tells that natura sun ight is made up of two different wavelength of ultraviolet ight: UVA and UVB.

Yah maybe it does give off 2 bands of UV light but im not sure how much differently they act. What was the article?

Since ultraviolet covers a fairly wide band of the em spectrum, rays of different frequencies will have different effects. UVA and UVB are defined specifically with respect to biological effects.

Such a research topic would be far too broad. Try to make it more specific as in 'the effects of UV radiation on ........'.

What is this topic for, High school? University?

Claude.
