Measurement of solar ultraviolet radiation and from artificial sources with wavelengths above 320 nm to 400 nm.
Plant, marine, climatological ozone or other biological impact studies that require continuous field measurements over long periods of time.
Correction of spectroradiometric measurement errors cause by the variations of irradiance during the scan.
Measurements for media and research organizations that provide public information about the effects of UV radiation.
