Abstract:
A solar spectroradiometer is an instrument used for measuring the transmitted solar radiation on a quasi-continuous basis. An existing computer controlled solar spectroradiometer system has been modified and made operable. Test measurements have shown that the signal to noise ratio (which is time of day and wavelength dependent) is at an acceptable level. The chief use of the spectroradiometer will be for atmospheric transmittance studies, which will require calibration of the instrument. Strategies for calibrating the instrument have been discussed.
