Abstract:

The main results of a trial field test program conducted a high-altitude location are presented and the conclusion drawn that determine, precisely and accurately, differences in radiative flux density arising from varying the acceptance aperture of a solar pyrheliometer, a new design of instrument is called for. The development of such an improved pyrheliometer is described, as is als6 the associated readout instrumentation. Author
