The Absorption Line Blackbody Distribution Function

Welcome to BYU's website for our research regarding the absorption line blackbody distribution function (ALBDF).  This function is used in the SLW model and other global gas radiation models. The ALBDF is a theoretical function that allows efficient computation of model parameters from detailed spectral absorption data for high temperature gases, in particular H2O, CO2, and CO.
