FUTBOLIN (FUll Transfer By Optimized LINe-by-line methods): Multi-level multiple scattering radiative transfer model for the calculation of line-by-line atmospheric emission/transmission spectra in planetary atmospheres. It has been developed by Javier Martin-Torres (AS&M. Inc, NASA/Langley Research Center, Hampton, VA, USA). It allows generating high-resolution synthetic spectra in the 0.3-1000 micrometre spectral range.
Additional recommended knowledge
The code can handle spherical or plane-parallel atmospheres. It reads spectral lines in HITRAN or GEISA format and can handle CO2 line mixing and continuum absorption from H2O, O2, N2 and CO2. It also takes into account the Non Local Thermodynamic Equilibrium (NLTE) effects on the rotational, electronic and vibrational populations of the atmospheric species and allows to specify any combinations of clouds, coverage and spectral albedo. It has been used to model the Earth's atmosphere, and the atmospheres of Mars, Venus, and Titan.
