AbstractTo enable realistic laboratory investigation of the role that different regions of this spectrum of terrestrial solar radiation play in the degradation of coatings, it is desirable to have a knowledge of the behavior of the spectral distribution of the radiation impinging on coatings during service life. Therefore an integrating actinometer was employed to determine the diurnal and seasonal variations in intensity of ultraviolet, visible, and near infrared bands of terrestrial solar radiation falling on planes facing south in a vertical position, south at 45 degrees, and normal to the sun's rays in Ottawa.
