Abstract

A set of radiative transfer software named CART (Combined Atmospheric Radiative Transfer) has been developed to rapidly calculate atmospheric transmittance and background radiance. The spectral resolution of CART is <TEX>$1cm^{-1}$</TEX>, and the spectral region covers from 1 to <TEX>$25000cm^{-1}$</TEX>. CART has five characteristic features, and it can be applied to many fields. The features and applications of CART are summarized in detail.
