D.J. Buckley, M.C. Dorrington, P.J. Edwards, T.J.L. McComb, S.P. Tummey, K.E. Turver; Measurement of sky clarity using FIR radiometers as an adjunct to atmospheric Cerenkov radiation measurements ;13 pages, 10 figures, submitted to Experimental Astronomy Report-no: Dur-Phys-VHE 98/06. Abstract:A technique for detecting the presence of cloud in the field of view of an atmospheric Cerenkov telescope using a far infra red radiometer is described. Models for the radiative emission from clear and cloudy skies are tested and found to represent the measurements.
