radiative transfer model for the millimeter and sub-millimeter spectral range


ARTS is a community effort. The core development is done by the University of Hamburg and Chalmers University.

There are a number of models mostly developed explicitly for the different sensors. The basic principle for the development of ARTS is to provide a code that can be applied for many different applications concerning radiative transfer calculations in the microwave region. For this reason much emphasis has been placed on modularity, extendibility, and generality.
