AtmosphericEmissivity: Atmospheric Emissivity

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References Examples

Description

The emissivity of the atmsophere [-]

Usage

1
AtmosphericEmissivity(airtemp, cloudiness, vp=NULL, opt="linear")

Arguments

airtemp

Air temperature: air temperature [C]

cloudiness

Cloudiness: fraction of the sky covered in clouds [-]

vp

Vapor Pressure : [kPa]

opt

option: either "linear" for a linear relationship between clear sky emissivity and temperature, or "Brutsaert" to use Brutsaert's(1975) clear sky emissivity formulation - this requires input for vapor pressure

Value

The emissivity of the atmsophere [-]
