  Title Model for Artificial Night-Sky Illumination. Type Journal Article
  Year 1986 Publication Publ Astron Soc Pac Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 98 Issue 601 Pages 364-375  
  Keywords Skyglow  
  Abstract A model has been constructed to allow calculation of the night-sky brightness caused by a city at its center and outside the city, and at arbitrary zenith distances. A circular city of uniform brightness is assumed, with the total brightness proportional to the population. Molecular scattering and aerosol scattering are included, with the amount of aerosols being an adjustable parameter, and different scale heights being adopted for molecules and aerosols. The reflectivity of the ground and the fraction of light radiated above the horizontal are taken as parameters. Applications are given to several cities, to the general population-distance relations, to brightness-distance relations, and to the city center brightness-population relations
