Abstract

An experimental system is described for measuring the total hemispherical and spectrally resolved directional downward infrared sky radiation and complementary weather data in Kuwait. The accuracy of the measurement system is discussed and its use for evaluating the potential of the Kuwait sky as a heat sink for passive radiative cooling applications is presented.
