Abstract

A band model for atmospheric absorption is used to calculate the incoming longwave atmospheric radiative flux for some typical clear sky conditions. The sky radiation is also measured using a specially-designed calorimetric apparatus over a wide range of ground-level atmospheric conditions. Good agreement is obtained between the measurement and the calculation using appropriate atmospheric conditions. -from Authors
