Data for Sunlight Spectra

Data for the extraterrestrial solar spectral irradiance and ground level solar spectral irradiance and irradiance. In addition data for shade light under vegetation and irradiance time series. Part of the 'r4photobiology' suite, Aphalo P. J. (2015) <doi:10.19232/uv4pb.2015.1.14>.


R package 'photobiologySun'

Package 'photobiologySun' contains spectral irradiance and irradiance data for solar radiation at ground level and above the atmosphere. It also conatins data for shade light. It complements other packages in the suite of R packages for photobiology 'r4photobiology'. Spectral data is stored in objects of classes defined in package 'photobiology'.

Please, see the web site R4Photobiology for details on this and other packages available as part of the suite.
