Parameters Measured

Solar Radiation

Solar Radiation is measured in watts per square meter.

Solar radiation is the total electromagnetic radiation emitted by the sun which is received at our monitoring site. These values are expressed in Langleys per minute. A Langley is a unit of energy per unit area (1 gram-calorie/cm2) commonly employed in radiation measurements.
