Determination of the solar ultraviolet radiation in tree shade

Parisi, Alfio V. & Kimlin, Michael G. (1999) Determination of the solar ultraviolet radiation in tree shade. Australian Science Teachers' Journal, 45(2), pp. 55-57.


The experiment described in this paper provides students the opportunity to study the Physics of electromagnetic radiation and its interaction with the physical environment and also illustrates that Physics exists outside the school laboratory. The amount of solar ultraviolet radiation in tree shade is measured at different times of the day and compared with changes in illumination levels and temperature.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
