Radiation Models

The Offline Edwards-Slingo Radiation Code calculates radiative fluxes or radiance given an atmospheric state. The radiation code is a suite of scripts and programs designed to calculate radiative fluxes or radiances. The core of the code is used with the Met Office’s GCM for climate and NWP forecasts. In order to calculate the radiation fields, additional information is required covering the decomposition of the spectrum into bands.
