CIBSE Guide J should help you feel confident that the decisions you make now, will be suitable for both the real weather today, and the current best guesses about future weather patterns. The Guide, available in the form of a CD-ROM, will also provide information and data to assist in the design of low energy, environmentally-friendly buildings.

Guide J provides much new information, especially the identification of hourly data sets for simulation, near-extreme warm and cold weather data, and new CIBSE Test Reference Years of representative weather conditions for energy calculations. It also deals with air pollution, for the first time in a CIBSE Guide. Another novel feature of this CD-ROM is the inclusion of a software ‘toolkitrsquo; designed specifically for weather data analysis 
The contents include:
  • General: Uses of weather data; Hourly data for simulation; Weather data toolkit; Solar data; Wind data; Comfort
  • Weather and building services engineering: Meteorology and climatology; Climate change; Statistics and data reduction; UK weather regions and zones; Summary statistics for UK sites
  • UK data for manual design: UK cold weather data; UK warm weather data; Accumulated temperature difference (degree-days and degree-hours); UK weather data in the recent past
  • Solar radiation, long-wave radiation and daylight: General; Solar radiation estimates based on meteorological observations; Theoretical estimation of short-wave radiation; Long-wave radiation exchanges at external surfaces of buildings; Sol-air temperatures; Illuminance and daylight availability
  • Wind data: Effects of wind on buildings and building services; Wind climate in the UK; Availability of wind energy; Wind speed, direction and external temperature; Influence of height and environment on mean wind speed
  • Air pollution: Effects of air pollutants; National networks for monitoring air quality; Sources of environmental quality data; Plume emission; Air quality standards
  • UK data for simulation: Understanding and using hourly data; Availability and quality of hourly data; Long-term hourly data; Weather years; Representative hot summers; Summer and winter design sequences
  • Weather analysis toolkit: General; Outline of operation
  • Overseas weather data: Europe; North America and rest of world
  • Sources of meteorological data: General; Publications; The internet; Meteorological services; European weather years; World Meteorological Organisation; Airports and airfields; Universities and research organisations
  • Appendices: Comparison of horizontal observed data with corresponding data derived from world clear sky irradiance tables; Mean synoptic data for days selected for design 97.5 percentile irradiance tables; Tables of solar and related data
