Radiant 1.0 : a user's guide
MetadataShow full item record
There are quite a few radiative transfer (RT) codes currently available to the atmospheric science community. Although the amount of code out there is not scarce, the heart of many of these codes is based on one of two methods: the eigenmatrix method as implemented by the Discrete Ordinate Method of Radiative Transfer (DISORT) RT solver or the doubling/adding method. The purpose of this paper is two-fold: (1) to introduce and describe a new multiple scattering plane-parallel atmospheric RT solver that takes advantage of the benefits of both the above methods while leaving some of their more ...
