Paper Abstract

Radiative transfer in the earth's atmosphere is modeled by a computer code called RADTRAN. RADTRAN may be used to model atmospheric transmission and emission in the frequency range of 30-300 GHz. Two versions of this computer code exist: the first is RADTRAN which incorporates six model clear atmospheres, six cloud models, six rain models and eight humidity models to model worldwide atmospheric conditions; the second is MWTRAN which is approximately one-sixth of the physical size of RADTRAN. Both RADTRAN and MWTRAN allow the researcher to read in any model data in any format.
