Paper Abstract

Scattering and radiative models are decisive elements in remote sensing applications. Their accuracy has an essential influence on the accuracy of the retrieved information on the physical and chemical constitution of the earth and its environment. An important scientific goal of the 'Atmospheric Processors' Dept. at the Remote Sensing Technology Institute is the development of sophisticated models to analyze atmospheric light scattering and radiative transfer processes in different spectral ranges. To support the scientific exchange and the usage of these models not only in the various active and passive remote sensing techniques the so-called 'Virtual Scattering and Radiative Transfer Laboratory' was developed. This laboratory is a pilot version of an on-line executable scietnfiic software repository. It is basd on a generic 'Virtual Lab' software infrastructure.
