Abstract: ExoRT is a flexible, two-stream radiative transfer code that interfaces with CAM/CESM (<a href="http://www.cesm.ucar.edu/models/current ... nt.html</a>) or 1D offline; it is also used with ExoCAM (ascl:2002.020). Quadrature is used for shortwave and hemispheric mean is used for longwave. The gas phase optical depths are calculate using a correlated K-distribution method, with overlapping bands treated using an amount weighted scheme. Cloud optics are treated using mie scattering for both liquid and ice clouds, and cloud overlap is treated using Monte Carlo Independent Column Approximation.
