EstCloudiness: Estimated Cloudiness

Description Usage Arguments Author(s) References Examples

Description

Estimates the cloudiness of the atmosphere by scaling to atmospheric transmissivity

Usage

1
2
EstCloudiness(Tx=(-999), Tn=(-999), trans=NULL, transMin = 0.15, 
transMax = 0.75, opt = "linear")

Arguments

Tx

maximum daily temperature [C]

Tn

minimum daily temperature [C]

trans

transmissivity of the atmosphere (value between 0-1)

transMin

Transmissivities equal and below this value will return a cloudiness value of 1 (for linear approximation)

transMax

Transmissivities equal and above this value will return a cloudiness value of 0 (for linear approximation)

opt

Currently there are two options: "linear" (Campbell 1985) and "Black" (1956)
