The estimation of photosynthetically active radiation across the earth’s surface is needed to model plant productivity and future impacts of ultraviolet-B (UV-B) radiation on plant productivity. While radiation in the ultraviolet and visible wavelengths is routinely measured using broadband and multifilter rotating shadowband radiometers in the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) UV-B Climate Monitoring Network, measurements of photosynthetically active radiation have not been made… CONTINUE READING
