Quote from the Invitation
We plan to make a forward model design workshop next April. The
purpose of the workshop is to fix all relevant design parameters of
the new microwave radiative transfer program for SMILES, so that we
can start the implementation afterwards. In other words, we want to
have a relatively detailed outline of the new program after the
workshop. Although the program is intended for use with SMILES, it
should be a rather general absorption and radiative transfer program
for the microwave spectral region, able to calculate in different
frequency ranges and observation geometries.
I want to stress again that what we have in mind is not a conference
or summer school. Rather, we want to sit together in an informal
atmosphere and talk about radiative transfer algorithms on a practical
and detailed level. The workshop is open to anyone who has practical
experience in implementing a radiative transfer model.
