RFM Flags: Calculate Absorption Coefficients for every Path Segment

CLC Flag

04SEP22

Enabled

Disabled

Restrictions
Incompatible with HOM, NAD, TAB and ZEN Flags (see Note 3)

Notes
  1. Enabling this flag will require significantly more CPU time and memory.
  2. The main purpose of this section is to check that the normally reasonable approximations made in the RFM by default do not significantly affect the results.
  3. Restrictions: in the case of the TAB and HOM Flags, specific absorption coefficients for each path are calculated by definition. For a plane-parallel atmosphere (NAD and ZEN Flags) the Curtis-Godson parameters, hence absorption coefficients per unit absorber, are already mathematically identical for all viewing angles
