The paper presents a review of some models to calculate the intensity of the atmospheric longwave radiation upon horizontal plane. This radiation (called also thermal or infrared radiation) may have significant influence on the radiative balance and subseuquently on the thermal balance of the building envelopes. From a point of view of the thermal balance of buildings the collected meteorological data do not satisfy a condition of the information complexity. In many countries, including Holland and Poland, there are not measured the atmospheric longwave radiation but available and nonsystematic stored measured data have not been suitable to the calculation. The main long-term aim of this work is to formulate a mathematical model of the incident atmospheric longwave radiation upon horizontal plane for different weather conditions for the South part of the Netherlands. In the papers are also indicated the possibilities of the future application of the developed model.
