Abstract:

A deterministic computer model of outdoor daytime nighttime radiant lighting is described for a clear sky and slight ground-level haze. Equations are developed for the radiance at an observers position, which is emitted from a target and the surrounding background. The equations are a function of the positions of the sun moon, the target and the observer. The equations include the effects of atmospheric attenuation, the background sky light, and the ground cover. The computer model was developed for use in simulation studies of target visibility.
