CAFS
CCD Actinic Flux Spectroradiometers

The CCD Actinic Flux Spectrometers (CAFS) is an instrument designed to measure ultraviolet and visible actinic flux between 280-650nm.It was developed by NCAR’s ARIM facility and has flown in multiple campaigns since its creation. Photolysis frequencies for many different chemical compounds can be derived from CAFS’s measurements.
