Short summary
The fast radiative transfer model RTTOV-gb was developed to foster ground-based microwave radiometer data assimilation into numerical weather prediction models, as introduced in a companion paper (https://doi.org/10.5194/gmd-9-2721-2016). Here we present the updates and new features of the current version (v1.0), which is freely accessible online.
