Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The issue of sky conditions is explored as applied to current daylighting practice. Based on studies of hourly sky conditions in the Washington, DC, area an understanding was sought regarding the ability to estimate illuminances and sky luminances under skies of variable cloudiness. The meaning and validity of non-standard, non-perfect skies is discussed, and limits of non-perfection are explored and compared against measurements of hourly sky luminance, illuminance, and solar radiation.-from STAR, 23(19), 1985
