~ PAR - Photosynthetically Active Radiation (400-700 nm light waveband)
~ All units in micromoles/sec/meter²
~ Aerial PAR is located on the superstructure of the buoy, approximately 2.5 meters above the surface of the water.
~ Two sensors are installed at the surface to compensate for shadowing by the buoy.
~ The higher reading of the two surface PARs is the more accurate reading.
Aerial PAR: Li-Cor® LI-190SZ Quantum Sensor
