A spectroradiometer was developed for use on the ground and aboard ship. The instrument separates global and diffuse solar radiation with a rotating shading band. Calibration results are compared with those of other sun photometers. The instrument was also mounted on a stabilized platform during an experimental trial aboard ship on the Tyrrhenian Sea. Results are comparable with those obtained by handheld sun photometer.
