The propagation of radiation through a medium is affected by absorption, emission, and scattering processes.

Methods. At the core of a radiative transfer model lies the radiative transfer equation that is numerically solved using a solver such as a discrete ordinate method or a Monte Carlo radiative transfer equation is a monochromatic equation to calculate radiance in a single layer of the Earth's atmosphere.

SBDART is a software tool that computes plane-parallel radiative transfer in clear and cloudy conditions within the earth’s atmosphere and at the surface. All important processes that affect the ultraviolet, visible, and infrared radiation fields are included.

The code is a marriage of a sophisticated discrete ordinate radiative transfer. Systematic errors in plane-parallel radiative transfer calculations have been examined in the context of limb radiance.

To put these physically intuitive concepts on a quantitative basis, it is necessary to examine the solution of the equation of radiative transfer.

Equations are second order accurate. Inner boundary Use diffusion approximation. Outer boundary. For plane-parallel, and spherical atmosphere can formulate a second order boundary condition for the Moment equations.

For the CMF (comoving-frame) transfer equation not feasible. This can cause a loss of accuracy and instabilities. The Equation of Radiative Transfer The method used in this study to solve the equation of radiative transfer is the successive orders of scattering technique.

The equation for radiative transfer is commonly known, (in differential form) as Schwarzschild’s Equation. It relies on fundamental physics. To solve the equation requires some maths. To solve the equation in practical terms the plane parallel assumption is used.

Introduction to the Theory of Atmospheric Radiative Transfer experts, and, as a consequence of long familiarity with the basic theory, a great deal is generally omitted from their papers as being well known or implied, causing still more confusion to the researcher new to the field.

An approximation used in many radiation models that depict the atmosphere as being only one-dimensional and bounded at the top and bottom by horizontal plane surfaces.

Let us consider a cloudless atmosphere and the infrared portion of the electromagnetic spectrum.
