Measurement of reflected, total and diffuse solar erythemal ultraviolet radiation

Parisi, Alfio V. & Kimlin, Michael G. (1998) Measurement of reflected, total and diffuse solar erythemal ultraviolet radiation. Australian Science Teachers' Journal, 44(3), pp. 9-11.


An experimental program was devised by the authors to firstly, provide students with practical ‘hands-on’ experience of concepts of physics, and secondly, increase awareness of the dangers of UV radiation by a series of scientific measurements on UV irradiance levels. A group of grade 10 students undertook the experiment and sample results are presented.

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.
