Bredbeck Workshop 2005

This workshop series was started in 1999. Its main objective is to enhance information exchange and collaboration regarding radiative transfer modeling in the mm and sub-mm frequency ranges. The discussions and experiences of the six previous workshops have resulted in the freely available radiative transfer model ARTS. Particular emphasis is put on the radiative modeling of humidity and cirrus clouds in the upper troposphere.


You can find the workshop program here.

The workshop starts and ends with lunch. The workshop itself, including meals and accommodation, is free of charge (courtesy of IUP, University of Bremen). Accommodation will be mostly in double rooms, we have booked a house with rooms for 30 registered participants. Travel expenses have to be covered by the participants.

We have arranged transportation between Bremen and the Bredbeck guesthouse by bus. To make use of this opportunity you have to be at the University of Bremen, Building NW1, at 10.00 on Monday June 20. Bredbeck is a rather remote place, so getting there on your own might be difficult.

If you want to arrive in Bremen before Monday June 20, or stay after Thursday June 23, we can help you to reserve a hotel room (however, you have to pay your own bill).


Anybody who is involved or interested in the field of radiative transfer modeling (MW, NIR, FIR) or data retrieval is invited to join the workshop and to actively participate. To enable real group work and efficient discussions, the number of participants is limited to 30. Places will be reserved on a first-come-first-served basis.


The workshop will to a large extent consists of group work and discussions. However, time will also be dedicated to oral presentations. The online registration form includes a field for abstract for participants who want to give a talk. Furthermore, another field is reserved for you to give a topic you would like to discuss with the other participants.


Please use the online form to register for the workshop. Registrations will be handled on a first-come-first-served basis. A list of registered participants can be found here.

Things to bring:

  • Swimming stuff (we can make an excursion to a nearby lake one evening).
  • Laptop with ARTS if you want help on ARTS usage.
  • Laptop with Linux / Cygwin if you want help on ARTS installation.
  • Paper copies and possibly also electronic copies of your slides.
