Paper Abstract

The HYDROLIGHT ocean radiative transfer code is a well established standard for simulating the water leaving radiance from the visible to the near infrared. However, its efficient use is a task not easily accomplished for running thousands of different cases and processing the generated results. HydroPPT is a tool integrated with HYDROLIGHT to generate input data and Fortran files and process the digital output files in batch mode. This paper describes workflows and examples for simulating a dataset. This paper also provides some tips to port HYDROLIGHT to some other compilers (e.g., Intel visual Fortran compiler) and platforms (e.g., SGI IRIX, HP TRU64, SUN Solaris, etc) to improve the computing efficiency and effectively use the computing resources. Based on our tests, Intel visual Fortran compiler provides improved performance for HYDROLIGHT code than that by the LAHEY Fortran compiler on the Intel processor based platforms.
