Abstract
The radiative transfer codes SMART (Suite for Multi-resolution Atmospheric Radiative Transfer) and SMARTI (SMART Interface) rely on MODTRAN® [1] for the parameters required to describe the atmosphere optically. These parameters have an altitude dependence (but are constant within a layer of the atmosphere) and a spectral dependence. These include among others: - The total extinction coefficients expressed in terms of Correlated-Ks; - The molecular scattering coefficients; - The aerosol extinction coefficients; - The aerosol scattering coefficients; - The scattering coefficients of different types of clouds (water, ice and cirrus); - The scattering coefficients of rain; and - The Legendre phase function expansion coefficients.
