Scintillometers

A Scintillometer measures atmospheric turbulence. The technique is based on the scintillation phenomenon in which heat fluxes cause variations in the refractive index of the atmosphere. This causes the ‘shimmering’ effect seen over a hot road.

Calibration Facility

We advise recalibration of radiometers every two years. Over a two year period in the field the sensitivity of an instrument changes slightly. For customers who have a large number of pyranometers and/or albedometers, or who maintain a network of instruments, regular re-calibration in Delft creates down-time and requires logistical effort.
