Abstract
We describe a radiative transfer model (SBDART-MOD) that can be used to analyze observations from new moderate resolution sensors such as MODIS. The gaseous absorption and thermal emission produced by this model rely on a pre-calculated correlated k-distribution database. Predictions from a line- by-line radiative transfer model is used to compare and evaluate the accuracy of the correlated-k method in both clear and cloudy conditions.
