scope:

AIMS

The Aims of this Agreement are:

a. To describe the principal climatic factors which constitute the

distinctive climatic environments found throughout the world, excluding Antarctica.

b. To identify each of these distinctive climatic environments in terms of categories of temperature and humidity conditions and to state

in which areas of the world each category occurs.

c. To establish standard descriptions of ambient air temperature,

humidity and direct solar radiation for each of these categories in

terms of diurnal and annual variations.

d. To recommend in particular, diurnal cycles of temperature, humidity

and direct solar radiation for use in determining design criteria.

e. To identify the other climatic factors which are significant in

each climatic category.

f. To recommend the intensities of these other climatic factors which should be considered when evaluating the total effect of climate upon

the materiel.

g. To state how the values of the climatic factors wary with altitude.

h. To quote the most intense values ever reliably recorded for each

climatic factor.

j. To provide guidance on the drafting of the climatic environmental

clauses of requirements documents.

This Agreement does not prescribe tests or trials schedules, nor does it

discuss all the possible effects of adverse climatic conditions upon materiel.
