GUVis-3511 radiometer configured with BioSHADE and BioGPS. Biospherical Instruments has just released the GUVis-3511 , the latest member of BSI's line of atmospheric radiometers . The GUVis-3511 is based on BSI’s proprietary microradiometer technology and available with up to 19 channels, ranging from 305 to 1,640 nm. The instrument can also be equipped with a shadowband accessory to determine the direct solar irradiance. Depending on configuration, the GUVis-3511 affords the measurement of the UV Index and the retrieval of aerosol optical depth, cloud optical thickness, and total column ozone.
