Terrestrial Radiation and Its Importance in Some Forestry Problems
Abstract:On calm, cloudless nights the surface of the earth loses heat by radiation to the atmosphere and through the atmosphere into outer space. This radiation cooling results in a number of phenomena which are of considerable importance in forestry, particularly with respect to fire danger measurement and regeneration problems in "frost pockets."
