About I3RC

I3RC is an ongoing project initiated in the late 1990s. Its goals include:

  • comparing methods available for 3D atmospheric radiative transfer calculations
  • providing benchmark results for testing and debugging 3D radiative transfer codes
  • publishing an open source toolkit (community 3D Monte Carlo code)
  • helping atmospheric science education by creating an archive of illustrative images and other resources on 3D radiative transfer

Participation is open to anyone interested in 3D radiative transfer. (Please sign up here.)
