Date: July 2017 (not publicly released)


LBLRTM_v12.7

Date: March 2017


LBLRTM_v12.6

Date: December 2016


Recent changes have been evaluated with RHUBC-I and RHUBC-II data .

LBLRTM_v12.5

Date: July 2016


LBLRTM_v12.4

Date: February 2016


LBLRTM_v12.2

Date: November 2012


LBLRTM_v12.1

Date: November 2011


LBLRTM_v12.0

Date: January 2011



LBLRTM_v11.7

Date: January 2010

 


Very Important:
  Accompanying this LBLRTM release is a spectroscopic line file containing line coupling(mixing) parameters, and a corresponding LNFL program that converts the ascii line file into an input binary file for LBLRTM.  Since the CO2 continuum and the CHI factor depend on the line coupling, the line coupling must be used in the calculations in order to obtain accurate results.


LBLRTM_v11.6

Date: June 2009


 


 

 
Very Important:  Accompanying this LBLRTM release is a spectroscopic line file containing line coupling(mixing) parameters, and a corresponding LNFL program that converts the ascii line file into an input binary file for LBLRTM.  Since the CO2 continuum and the CHI factor depend on the line coupling, the line coupling must be used in the calculations in order to obtain accurate results.


LBLRTM_v11.3

Date: November 2007


 

 
 
 
 
 
 

Very Important:  Accompanying this LBLRTM release is a new line file containing Niro et al. (2005) line coupling parameters (aer_v_2.1) and corresponding LNFL_v_2.5 program that converts the ascii line file into an input binary file for LBLRTM.Since the CO2 continuum and the CHI factor depend on the line coupling, the line coupling must be used in the calculations in order to obtain accurate results.

Very Important: Since the CO2 continuum and the CHI factor depend on the line coupling, the line coupling must be used in the calculations in order to obtain accurate results.  Therefore, accompanying this LBLRTM release is a new line file containing Niro et al. (2005) line coupling parameters (aer_v_2.0) and corresponding LNFL_v_2.4 program that converts the ascii line file into an input binary file for LBLRTM.


LBLRTM_v10.7

Date: June 2007


LBLRTM_v10.3

Date: August 2006


LBLRTM_v10.1

Date: June 2006

Modifed the program so that the layer optical depth calculation options work as specified in the instructions and are consistent with versions previous to LBLRTM_v10.0. (S.A. Clough and M.W. Shephard)
