The Climate Suitability Tool implements the method outlined in the following publications: "Impact of adaptive thermal comfort on climatic suitability of natural ventilation in office buildings" [2010] , NISTIR 6781 [2001] and NIST-GCR01-820 [2001] . The analysis is based on a single-zone model of natural ventilation heat transfer in commercial buildings. This method is applied to user-selected climatic data to characterize:
