Abstract : Describes results of a pilot study to simulate electrooptical and meteorological variables; based on the NATO Optical Atmospheric Quantities in Europe (OPAQUE) project. The E-O/Met simulator generates simultaneous synthetic measurements of: visual attention, visual extinction, infrared transmittance, cloud cover, wind speed, relative humidity, temperature, dew point, and aerosol infrared extinction. The pilot study involved two distinct steps: (1) A data study to investigate the underlying probability distributions, serial correlation, and cross-correlations of key weather and electrooptical variables, and (2) Building and testing a simulation model based on the results of the data study. The data analysis includes both raw and derived variables. Contents: The Meteorological and Electro-Optical Variables; Basic Techniques in Environmental Simulation; Cumulative Distribution Functions of Electro-Optical and Meteorological Variables; Correlations of Electro-Optical and Meteorological Variables; The Electro-Optical/Meteorological Simulator; Predictive Regression Equations for Opaque Data.
