Quick Reference

An electronic instrument used to measure ultraviolet radiation flux, which is a component of solar radiation. Originally designed in Australia by D. R. Robertson (1914–1989) in the 1950s, the meters were modified by D. S. Berger (b. 1923) in the United States. Robertson-Berger meters are used to assess the potential risk to humans and other organisms from solar ultraviolet radiation. Alternative measuring instruments for UV radiation flux are described; some employ biological monitoring.
