oa Botswana Notes & Records - The performance of solar ultraviolet radiometers in the Botswana climate

Volume 32 Number 1
  • ISSN : 0525-5090



The performance of solar ultraviolet (UV) radiometers in the climate of Botswana have been studied extensively with the apparatus set up on the roof of the Physics Department building of the University of Botswana. Studies have taken place with solar radiation meters (radiometers) from Eppley Laboratories (USA) and Kipp & Zonen (Holland). In this paper it will be shown that the UV radiometers performance characteristics, in particular the sensitivity of the radiometers, decay when exposed to the atmosphere for long periods of time.
