Abstract : HYDROLIGHT is a radiative transfer numerical model that computes spectral radiance distributions and related quantities for natural water bodies. Version 3.0 is the most general version of the HYDROLIGHT model. Version 3.1 of the model is a standardized version of the code, which is designed to be easy to run. Version 3.1 comes with a separate interactive front end program that queries the user for input and then creates the files necessary to run the HYDROLIGHT code itself. Several options in the general Version 3.0 model are set to default values in the 3.1 code, in order to simplify the user supplied input. Various files are in ASCII format, so that they are machine independent. The standard printout is tailored to remote sensing applications. This report documents only the interactive front end program and the modifications made to the Version 3.0 code, which itself is fully documented. Users needing the full power of the HYDROLIGHT model can continue to run Version 3.0.
