Abstract
A simple and convenient tool to investigate the radiative characteristics of the atmosphere- underlying surface system is described here. It is the ATMOTOOLS package implemented for IBM PC and synthesizing up-to-date optical atmosphere models, new procedures for refining these models, and special radiation calculation procedures. Considerable attention is paid to aerosols models and arrangement of data banks on optical aerosol properties. Calculation procedures for radiative transfer are developed with regard to atmosphere stratification, light polarization, multiple scattering, and so on. Some examples of investigating different problems connected with remote sensing of ocean, ozone, and clouds using ATMOTOOLS are given.
