API Reference

The SASKTRAN framework is built around three abstractions:


Objects that can calculate radiances. Additionally some engines can calculate analytic or optimized Weighting Functions.


An object that describes the atmospheric constituents, and surface type to the engine. Atmospheric constituents are defined by a list of Species, and surfaces are defined by a given BRDF.


Objects which describe the geometry of the calculations to the engine. At a minimum these objects define the Lines of Sight, but can also specify things such as the suns position and the polling reference point.
