[1] The Radiation Transfer Model Intercomparison (RAMI) initiative is a communitydriven exercise to benchmark the models of radiation transfer (RT) used to represent the reflectance of terrestrial surfaces. Systematic model intercomparisons started in 1999 as a self-organized, open-access, voluntary activity of the RT modeling community. The results of the first phase were published by Pinty et al. [2001]. The present paper describes the benchmarking protocol and the results achieved during the… CONTINUE READING
