A model for estimating radiation received by a person in the landscape Academic Article uri icon


  • A computer model of physically-based and empirical micro-meteorological equations has been. assembled to estimate the total radiation (short and long wave) that would be absorbed by a person in a range of landscapes. This information can be applied to a human thermal comfort model such as COMFA suggested by Brown and Gillespie (1986) to determine the thermal comfort levels in micro-environments. This • type of information will aid landscape architects in making climatically-sensitive planning and design decisions. © 1990, American Industrial Hygiene Association. All rights reserved.
