RFM Flags: Write Absorption Spectra

ABS Flag

13SEP22

Enabled
Create spectral files of absorption (=1-transmission).

Disabled
Absorption spectra not written

Restrictions
Incompatible with TAB Flag.

Notes
  1. For absorption values close to 1 it might be useful to add the DBL Flag or write transmission spectra as well/instead (TRA Flag).
  2. Unless applying a spectral convolution, it may be even more useful to generate optical depth spectra instead (OPT Flag), which won't have this saturation problem. Absorption a is related to optical depth χ by
    a = 1 - exp(-χ)
    (so, for small absorption values, a ≈ χ)
  3. See RFM Outputs for default filename(s).
