Radiative transfer theory and modelling with libRadtran

Abstract

Radiative trasnfer theory and modelling with libRadtran provide a vital tool for scientists to study the light environment, and the effect that it has on plants. After a recent visit from Arve Kylling to the University of Helsinki, this article highlights background information and the steps taken to using libRadtran.
