    Abstract

    Atmospheric humidity is measured by a variety of transduction principles which include dew point measurement, wet and dry bulb method and hair hygrometry. (Middleton amp; Spilhans). These methods are inherently slow and require considerable mathematical manipulations, to determine the actual amount of water vapour present. In order to overcome these difficulties, an infra-red humidiometer was designed and developed. The instrument enables measurement of rapid changes in humidity and is a powerful tool to investigate atmospheric humidity flux changes (wood).
