Measurement: Solar Radiation
Integrate Climate Variables Account for environmental variables with simple, accurate, plug-and-log sensors. Get Local Weather Measure weather data where you are, not 5 miles away at the Met tower, so that you can measure environmental variation on…
The Spectral Reflectance Sensors (SRS) are two band radiometers designed to measure the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) or Photochemical Reflectance Index (PRI). The SRS are designed for long term field deployment to continually monitor changes in NDVI or PRI related to canopy growth, senescence, stress, and productivity.
Total solar (i.e., shortwave) radiation data have a wide range of uses, including distinguishing between latent heat flux and sensible heat, calculating an energy balance, and calculating evapotranspiration using the Penman-Monteith equation. This simple, accurate pyranometer allows you to measure total solar radiation over your chosen time interval. Plug-and-log simplicity when used with the Em50 line of data loggers.
