radiative transfer model

(models of radiative transfer, often computerized)

A radiative transfer model (RTM) essentially tries to solve the radiative transfer equation, often through computation. Such modeling is done for meteorology as well as for astrophysics. The equation relates a number of processes (absorption, emission) often non-linear and not partial to analytical solutions.
