The Spectral Irradiance sensor (Sea Bird OCR-507 multispectral radiometer) measures the amount of downwelling radiation (light energy) per unit area that reaches a surface. Radiation is measured and reported separately for a series of seven wavelength bands (412, 443, 490, 510, 555, 620, and 683nm), each between 10-20 nm wide.
