adaptation luminance

[‚a‚dap′tā·shən ′lü·mə·nəns]
(optics)
The average luminance, or brightness, of objects and surfaces in the immediate vicinity of an observer estimating the visual range. Also known as adaptation brightness; adaptation illuminance; adaptation level; brightness level; field brightness; field luminance.

mes]([lambda]) attains a maximum value of 1, and m is a coefficient dependent on the adaptation luminance and spectrum.
0) corresponds to the magnitude of the effect of spectrum, increasing as adaptation luminance decreases.
If it is known that the adaptation luminance will be at or below 3 cd/m2, mesopic multipliers can be used to transform recommended values from photopic to mesopic.
DGI is computed from a formula that was developed to account for the effects of source brightness, size, location relative to line of sight, and adaptation luminance.
In practice, adaptation luminance is usually taken as the average luminance in the relevant viewpoint, but it is a gross simplification.
