A closeup view of the radiometer system on the ASIT. Two radiometers (left) measure the radiance emitted by the ocean at two angles from the solar plane. Another radiometer (right) measures the incident irradiance at the same seven wavelengths of the two radiometers. Data are transmitted in real time by an Ethernet link to computers in our shore laboratory where they are logged, processed, and quality-controlled.
