11-17-16 The Evolution of Net Radiometers


Are you modeling net radiation? In this video Dr. Bruce Bugbee, president of Apogee Instruments, discusses the evolution of net radiometers and why it is better to measure net radiation than model it. The video also talks about how the designs of older net radiometers influenced the design of the new Apogee Instruments SN-500 Net Radiometer, a research-grade, four component net radiometer that is highly accurate and moderately priced. The SN-500 features tiny internal heaters to keep the optics clear of any dew and frost, and measures and displays all-four components of net radiation, outputting the information in SDI-12 format to preserve data-logger channels.
