Code Repositories

  • run_lblrtm_disort: Python code on bitbucket for computing cloudy sky radiative transfer by running LBLRTM to get clear sky optical depths followed by running DISORT (see below) to get cloudy-sky downwelling infrared radiance in microwindows.
  • runDISORT_py: Python code for running disort to compute cloudy-sky downwelling infrared radiances. Please see the readme file at the Bitbucket site for details.
  • runDISORT_mat: Matlab/Octave code for running disort to compute cloudy-sky downwelling infrared radiances. See the readme file at the github site for details.
  • Python code for processing Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer (AERI) data. This code implements a responsivity-based criterion:
