Table of Contents


ASIMUT-ALVL** is a modular software for radiative transfer calculations in planetary atmospheres. The ASIMUT software has been developed to exploit the synergy existing between the growing number of different instruments working under different geometries. The main particularities of the software are:

Initially developed for the Earth atmosphere, its applicability has been extended to extraterrestrial atmospheres: Venus and Mars are implemented, but it is easy to add any other planets or bodies.

To be able to simulate scattering atmospheres, the ASIMUT-ALVL software has been linked to the following codes :
