Abstract:

To assess the utility of visibility as an indicator of transmittance in the infrared, models depicting haze, fog, smoke, and dust were constructed such that all yielded identical transmittances at 0.55 micrometers center of the visible spectrum, and transmittances at several infrared wavelengths due to scattering only were calculated. Results show that significant errors occur if visibility is relied upon. Author
