SunTracker Updates Free DLI Calculator
SunTracker Technologies has updated its free daily light integral (DLI) calculator tool.
The new and improved free online software tool merges ground weather station data with satellite data that provides monthly shortwave (ultraviolet, visible and near-infrared) incoming radiation for any geographic location. The data is converted from watts per square meter to photosynthetic photon flux density (PPFD) and hence monthly DLI values.
The satellite data is corrected using statistical techniques of comparison between the weather station and satellite datasets. The results are more accurate and reliable DLI values, regardless of the geographic location worldwide.
SunTracker’s DLI Calculator is available at www.suntrackertech.com/dli-calculator/.
The new and improved version will be released on Oct. 31, 2020.
