Solar radiation

Solar radiation is the driving force for atmospheric dynamics and photochemistry. The radiometrical determination of solar radiation related quantities is therefore important for a quantitative understanding of meteorological and photochemical processes and their interactions, as well as for the remote sensing of atmospheric parameters.

At IEK-8 institute a number of measurement techniques for solar radiation quantities are applied.
