SBDART MatLab Tool

SBDART MatLab Tool (and WebTool)

SBDART: Tool for Computing Radiative Transfer in the Earth's Atmosphere
WebTool written by Paul Schou, Released on 18 Dec 2007. Current version: 1.04
Based on the UCSB SBDART code by Paul Ricchiazzi et al., 1998. Other points of contact regarding SBDART are Bill O'Hirok and Catherine Gautier.

The Power of SBDART, The ease of MatLab Graphics.

A simple yet effective MatLab interface to work with the data generated on this site. It can be used to download data and produce plots. However this MatLab tool will only work when connected to the internet and can access this page. Examples and help may be found by typing 'help sbdart' in the matlab command window.

To be able to use this script, the file `sbdart.m' must either be in your path or your current working folder. I don't keep up with where the /work/ folder is to be able to tell you where yours is at, but on my two computers my Debian/Ubuntu box has it here `/usr/local/matlab2007a/work' and my mac has it here `/Applications/MATLAB_R2007a/work'. I hope this helps.

As of version 1.0 all output types are fully supported and all input parameters work with accordance to MatLab standards of property name then property in pairs, ie:
  sbdart('wlsup',20,'wlinc',.1,'nf',2,'idatm',4,'isat',0,'iout',1)
A basic set of tests have been applied to each output method and a basic set of tests have been put on the input properties. Input files such as solar.dat cannot be used at this time, however I hope to make a version available that will provide a way to wrap in external files (such as solar.dat). If this feature would help you, send me an email and I'll get you to help with debugging.
