GUV Description

The GUV-511 radiometer is a moderate-bandwidth filter instrument, which measures spectral irradiance at 305, 320, 340, and 380 nm, as well as Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR). From these measurements a variety of data products can be calculated, including spectral integrals (e.g. UV-B or UV-A), UV dose-rates (e.g. erythemal irradiance, the UV Index, DNA damaging UV), and total ozone. A detailed description of the instrument and calibration procedure can be found here.
