Fast infrared radiative transfer calculations using graphics processing units: JURASSIC-GPU v2.0

Paul F. Baumeister and Lars Hoffmann

Model code and software

JURASSIC-GPU v2.0 Paul Baumeister and Lars Hoffmann

Short summary
The efficiency of the numerical simulation of radiative transport is shown on modern server-class graphics cards (GPUs). The low-cost prefactor on GPUs compared to general-purpose processors (CPUs) enables future large retrieval campaigns for multi-channel data from infrared sounders aboard low-orbit satellites. The validated research software JURASSIC is available in the public domain.
