Abstract : A new and computationally efficient method for treating problems in radiative transfer was adapted for more general problems and submitted to numerical testing to establish accuracy and efficiency in comparison to other methods. Results indicate that the method has promise for application in a wide variety of practical problems in atmospheric physics. (Author)
