URANOS is a Monte Carlo toolkit specifically tailored for environmental sciences. It can be used to simulate cosmogenic neutron radiation near the Earth's surface and to study its response to environmental factors, such as soil water content, snow, or biomass.
- stand-alone executable,
- parallelization (can run performantly in multiple parallel instances),
- graphical user interface (optional) for the command line.
- 3D voxel engine to allow the generation of complex environments
