Abstract : Temperature changes due to the combined effects of radiation and turbulence were computed using the ideas of Interim Report No. 1 ('The Effect of Atmospheric Haze on Infrared Radiative Cooling Rates', W. Zdunkowski, D. Henderson, and J. Vern Hales.) It was found that the results correspond with the general idea that radiation effects should not be neglected. The numerical results are not yet satisfactory and further experimentation is necessary. An error was discovered in Interim Report No. 1 for the computations including reflected radiation. The revision is included as an appendix to this report. (Author)
