Line-by-Line modeling of radiation transfer in the thermal IR
Written report (as part of Homework 3)
due: 29 Sep
Line-by-line (LBL) calculations of radiative transfer in an absorbing/emitting atmosphere
is an “exact” method for computing a monochromatic radiance by explicitly accounting
for contribution from all individual lines and continuum of gases that can absorb
at each wavenumber of interest.
Here, we will be running a LBLRTM code and interpreting the model results. The LBLRTM
was developed at the ATMOSPHERIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH INC (see Lecture 7).
