### radiative transfer code

**(RT code)**
(computer model of a gas's radiative transfer)

**Radiative transfer code** (**RT code**)
is a computer routine to solve the equations
describing radiative transfer, i.e., the propagation of energy
from electromagnetic radiation passing through an atmosphere (gas or plasma) including
the effects of absorption, emission, and scattering. The equations
are sufficiently complex that they need to be solved numerically.
