Radiometric Uncertainty Tool

Minimize Project Documents

On the one hand, the RUT documentation regarding the software code and its implementation — html help also included — is fully available at the GitHub repository. A description of the data and code is given in DATA RESOURCES.

On the other hand, a range of publications and presentations have covered the main aspects of the radiometric uncertainty analysis and software design. They are summarised in the table below:
