Here is an article from Hack-a-Day about a project that quantifies visibility by examining an image of a distant tall building.  From my office hear in Phoenix you can see a mountain in the distance almost at the horizon. The contrast between the mountain and the sky varies considerably depending on the visibility, at least during the day, and I have been thinking about fixing up some kind of sensor to measure the contrast, assuming I can find my roundtuit.
