That is given by $$T= \frac{ln(p)}{ln(q)}$$ where p is the transmission coefficient of the actual sky and q is the transmission coefficient of an "ideal" sky (your "cloudless sky").

I have changed the Advanced Thermodynamics question to "turbidity factor." -Dan __________________ I'm a "something shiny" kind of...Oh look! Something shiny! See the forum rules here.
