The LI-1400 Datalogger is often used for collecting environmental data using a variety of LI-COR Biosciences sensors. These include the LI-190 Quantum Sensor, the LI-192 Underwater Quantum Sensor, the LI-193 Spherical Quantum Sensor, and the LI-200 Pyranometer, among others. You can either program their LI-1400 to collect data automatically or set it up to collect data manually.

The LI-1400 has a power-saving mode to help conserve the batteries by…

It’s Pyranometer Calibration Season

It’s Pyranometer Calibration Season

The LI-200 Pyranometer Calibration schedule will be reaching its annual suspension on October 1st, 2011 and continuing through until February 28th, 2012.

LI-COR encourages our customers to return their LI-200 Pyranometer Sensors for recalibration (suggested every 2 years after field deployment) between the months of March and September. Why? Because pyranometer sensors need to be calibrated outdoors in natural sunlight in order to construct an accurate relationship between the output of each sensor and incoming solar radiation. During LI-COR’s 40…

Appropriate Sky Conditions for Using the LAI-2000

Appropriate Sky Conditions for Using the LAI-2000

For users of the LAI-2000 Plant Canopy Analyzers, just a reminder that an overcast sky is the best condition in which to use the instrument.

Under cloudy skies, the contribution of scattered radiation is low; when the direct beam of the sun is shining on foliage, scattered radiation is significantly increased. The LAI-2000 optical sensor is filtered to reject radiation above 450 nm, which minimizes the influence of radiation scattered by the foliage. If scattered radiation is present, however, the…
