Steadman apparent temperature index

Not one, but several apparent temperature indices calculated by Steadman (1979, 1979, 1984). In an attempt to quantify “sultriness”, Steadman (1979, 1979) incorporated temperature, humidity, clothing and human physiology into a number of algorithms, which were later simplified into regression equations for indoor, shaded and sunny conditions (Steadman 1984). The regression equations were later adapted by Rothfusz (1990) to create the heat index (HI).
