Radiation measurements above and in forest

Perttu, Kurth


The report deals with radiation measurements made from aircraft over different kinds of surfaces and on the ground in different types of forest. With the results of the measurements as a basis, the distribution of the radiation energy in two different types of forest is then discussed. A short report of the general structure of the radiation is also given (part 2). The measurements from aircraft consisted solely of shortwave radiation (0,3-4 mm), whereas the measurements made on the ground consisted partly of shortwave radiation and partly of total net radiation (0,3-60 mm). The measurement sites are situated on latitudes 60, 63, 66 and 67 degrees North.
