A BIBLIOGRAPHY ON METHODS OF ATMOSPHERIC VISIBILITY MEASUREMENTS RELEVANT TO AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL AND RELATED SUBJECTS
The bibliographical survey provides reference information and background material to assist in the selection of principles and measuring techniques which may be used in the development of future systems to measure Runway Visual Range (RVR), Slant Visual Range (SVR), Approach Light Contact High (ALCH), Taxi Visual Range (TVR), or any other parameter to be defined which will describe the photometric conditions of runways and/or taxiways under actual operational and atmospheric visibility conditions. This survey gives much of the literature which has been published on the subject of visibility, the factors inherent to the target background, atmospheric optics, visibility-measuring instrumentation, photometric properties of the eye, visibility data-provessing, landing takeoff and taxiing problems which are imposed by reduced visibility.
