DART (Discrete Anisotropic Radiative Transfer) is a 3D multispectral radiative transfer model with earth-atmosphere coupling in optical and thermal range. It integrates a flux tracking mode and a Monte Carlo method to compute remote sensing images, radiative budget for any natural and urban landscapes, sun/view configuration, atmosphere, spectral band, altitude and spatial resolution. Recently, LIDAR modelling was introduced, based on the Monte Carlo approach. DART is then able to simulate accurately full LIDAR waveforms with informations about multiple scattering for any landscape and LIDAR zenith angle. The speaker will present the model, its possibilities and results obtained during his recent stay here.
