That is given by $\displaystyle T= \frac{ln(p)}{ln(q)}$ 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 __________________ Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
