Radiation data are important in calculating an energy balance, in determining latent heat flux vs. sensible heat, in generating interception data for biomass and crop growth models, and for use in the Penman-Monteith equation.
We offer both total solar radiation and photosynthetically-active radiation sensors.

PAR is often used to generate interception, which is then used to predict biomass production, crop growth, etc. This simple, no-frills sensor measures photosynthetically active radiation over your chosen time interval. Plug-and-log simplicity when used with the Em50 line of data loggers. » Learn more
Total solar 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 sensor 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. » Learn more
