The silicon-cell pyranometer is calibrated to measure total shortwave radiation. It is commonly used in solar site characterization for renewable energy potential and in agricultural applications. The intensity of shortwave radiation is measured in watts per meter squared. This cosine corrected sensor is designed to maintain its accuracy when radiation comes from low zenith angles
