Radiative Transfer and Surface Property Modelling

About the RTSP

This working group was formed at the 11th ITSC meeting in Budapest (2000) to foster the development of radiative transfer and surface property models for satellite radiance assimilation. On this site we maintain up-to-date reference information on

and documentation relating to our working group activities
