FSTRC is an iPad/iPhone application that enables students and researchers alike to visualize and quantify several terrestrial radiation quantities important for understanding many climate and remote-sensing problems. The GUI allows users to input atmospheric data into a calibrated radiative transfer model that calculates the specific parameters of manipulation, display, listing, and/or saving including; up-and-downwelling spectral radiance, spectrally integrated radiance, flux densities, cooling rates, vertical and spectral distributions, and radiative forcing.
