WG 3DRT's current Co-Chairs are Alexander Marshak and Jean-Luc Widlowski. WG 3DRT integrates the interests of a variety of applications of three-dimensional radiative transfer, including clouds, with the work of I3RC (Intercomparison of 3-Dimensional Radiative Transfer Codes), and complex vegetation as considered by RAMI (Radiation Transfer Model Intercomparison).

The 3DRT working group's goals include:

* evaluating methods available for 3D atmospheric radiative transfer calculations
* providing benchmark results for testing and debugging 3D radiative transfer codes
* developing 3D radiative transfer community tools
