AbstractNet radiometers measure the net flux of both solar and terrestrial radiation, and should be calibrated separately in each of these wavelength regions. The basic principle of the absolute calibration of radiometers for terrestrial or long-wave radiation is very simple, but the problem of providing adjacent areas with controlled and calculable radiation fluxes is rather complex. The design of a conical radiating cavity has been developed in detail.
