Course in Radiative Transfer Modelling to better understand solar irradiance data

Titta Kotilainen has also been instrumental in setting up the possibility for DPPS students at the University of Helsinki students to participate in a course on libRadtran: a library of radiative transfer models that allows users to access irradiance data for application in their research.
This course, run in cooperation this the FMI, was given by Arve Kylling (NILU) the actual developer of libRadtran and took place on 25th-26th October 2016 in Exactum building of the Kumpula Campus, Helsinki.
The course is open to DPPS students at the University of Helsinki and partly sponsored by CanSEE and the DPPS.

Here is the schedule here.

….And Craig Brelsford has published a review of the working and guidelines for how to get started with LibRadTran in the UV4plants Bulletin.
