Radiative Transfer

(RT)
(energy transfer in the form of electromagnetic radiation)

Radiative Transfer is the transfer of energy through Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR). This is affected by Absorption, Emission, and scattering. An equation of radiative transfer relates these processes.

Radiative Transfer is characterized by the quantity Radiance. is the rate of energy flowing at a given time through a given area at a given location. spectral radiance, in turn, is the radiance at a given Wavelength.

An Equation of Radiative Transfer (RTE) is an equation that describes this process.
