Abstract:

A program designated FLASH has been developed to provide a means to study the propagation of monochromatic radiation from a plane parallel source through a spherical shell atmosphere. A simple illustration of the backward Monte Carlo method utilized in the development of the FLASH program is discussed in order to show the advantage of the method. A brief description of the methods employed in the FLASH program is given to illustrate the application of the backward Monte Carlo treatment of light propagation through a spherical shell atmosphere. Several comparisons of FLASH generated data with data from other calculational methods are shown.
