The NR-LITE is a rugged net radiometer manufactured by Kipp & Zonen. Net radiometers measure the energy balance between incoming short-wave and long-wave IR radiation relative to surface reflected short-wave and outgoing long-wave IR radiation. This net radiometer includes two black conical absorbers; one facing upward, the other facing downward. They are coated in Teflon making them resistant to weather without requiring a fragile plastic dome. Both absorbers are calibrated to an identical sensitivity coefficient.
