Temperature correction

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

Dear All,
I have collected temperature data for a period of about 4 months with a device called ibutton attached to the surface of a concrete wall. My problem is the button is made of Stainless steel 305 and exposed to sunlight.
I am interested in obtaining the wall surface temperature and at the same time i know the effect of the sunlight would affect temperature readings (if i am not wrong).
does anyone know or have an idea on how i can correct these readings if i have to?

Data available to me at the moment are: average irradiance of the location, specific heat of the stainless steel 305 and that of the concrete wall (including temperature values)

Can you shade the temperature sensor and compare readings in and out of sunlight? Or can you compare readings on cloudy days vs clear days?
