2005 - 2007
The third phase of the RAMI exercise is now officially closed. 18 different RT models from all over the globe have been participating in the various experiments of RAMI 3.
First results (homogeneous cases only) were presented at the ISPMSRS meeting in October 2005 in Beijing, China. A more comprehensive presentation of the RAMI 3 results was given at the IWMMM-4 workshop in Sydney, Australia in March 2006.
The experiments of RAMI 3, which built upon and extended the scope of previous RAMI phases, have been constructed around two major components:
Homogeneous scenes, which require the simulation of a standard set of radiative quantities in both the solar domain and under conservative scattering conditions for discrete and turbid-medium canopy representations. Here, the repetition of experiments known from previous RAMI phases offers the possibility to re-evaluate veteran models, as well as to welcome newcomers.
Heterogenous scenes, which have been subdivided into

First time users, on the other hand, may want to explore the various test cases of this RAMI phase by using the hierarchic link provided below. In addition, a synoptic overview table is also provided to give direct access to all experiments of RAMI 3 and their associated measurements.
Access to descriptions of the various experiments and measurements, as well as the corresponding model simulations and results statistics can be obtained through the links provided below.
Information regarding the structural and spectral properties of the proposed testcases, the nature of the various measurements that had to be performed, and the many results statistics and RT model simulations of this phase can be viewed here:
