Sasktran Software Packages
Sasktran is the radiative transfer software developed by the USASK-ARG group for modelling atmospheric signals. It was originally developed for limb measurements by the OSIRIS but has been significantly extended and includes support for nadir, near infra-red and thermal observations.
Cross-sections for a selection of common atmospheric components (e.g. O3, NO2) are built-in as well as full support for HITRAN cross-sections. Users may add there own cross-sections as tables in wavelength indexed by temperature.
The MSIS90 atmospheric model is built-in as a general purpose atmosphere and we have additional software components to access the atmospheric parameters of various re-analyses. The SAO2010 model of solar irradiance is built into the system as well as a selection of solar irradiance curves published by Fontela.
The software is as pre-built binary packages for Python, version 3.6 and higher on 64 bit platforms (Windows and most Linux).
