Measuring solar UV-B: why is it so difficult?
Measuring UV-B radiation is difficult. However, a short demonstration of some of the causes behind the difficulties will be of interest. I will discuss how the properties of the emission spectrum of a radiation source, the shape of the biological spectral weighting functions, and the spectral response of radiation detectors interact to cause difficulties.
