Radiative Transfer Model

(models of radiative transfer, often computerized)

A Radiative Transfer Model (RTM) essentially tries to solve the Radiative Transfer (RT) equation, often through computation. Such modeling is done for meteorology as well as for astrophysics. The equation relates a number of processes (Absorption, Emission) often non-linear and not partial to analytical solutions.
