May 6-7, 2019, in Finnish Meteorological Institute, Erik Palménin aukio 1, Dynamicum-building, Helsinki.


  • Tanja Tarvainen, University of Eastern Finland
  • Hannakaisa Lindqvist, Finnish Meteorological Institute
  • Antti PenttiläUniversity of Helsinki


This workshop is arranged to bring together researchers working on theory and computational modelling of radiative transfer in Finland. The research fields include, but are not limited to, for example astronomy, atmospheric physics and biomedical optics. The aim is to gather together from these different fields  to present their research and exchange ideas.
