Abstract
A study of the LOWTRAN 6 radiance models shows how atmospheric profile layering could improve near-horizon radiance predictions. The LOWTRAN 6 program is used to predict atmospheric path radiance, which is then compared with two sets of measurements made over the Mediterranean Sea. LOWTRAN 6 radiance predictions are made for two atmospheric profiles including radiosonde data. The "zero-order" and the "conservative" scattering models are also examined.
