of the Louis Garand intercomparison on AMSU (Advanced Microwave
Sounding Unit) channels.
ATM has been one of the participating models.
See also Paper 20 on my publications list.
ATM has been developed to perform radiative
transfer calculations trough the terrestrial atmosphere. It treats the clear sky
case to evaluate absorption/emissivity, but also polarization and scattering effects.
It is currently used by several mm/submm wave telescopes to evaluate atmospheric.
transmission and phase dispersion. Validation of this model has been undertaken
with a series of observational experiments using a Fourier Transform Spectrometer
installed at the Caltech Submillimeter Observatory (Mauna Kea, Hawaii). My main
collaborators for the development of ATM have been J. Cernicharo, E. Serabyn,
C. Prigent and M.I. Mishchenko.
Different parts of the code have been described or used in
papers 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 10, 12, 13, 16, 20, 21, 22, 24, 25, 27, 28, 33 and 34
