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 some numerical analysis is necessary, and possibly even tables of experimental results.
