RFM Flags

MTX Flag: Produce Inter-Level Matrix of Flux Calculations

03OCT17

Enabled
Produce interval flux transmittances (TRA Flag) and absorptions (ABS Flag)
Produce sensitivities of net fluxes (RAD Flag) and cooling rates (COO Flag) to layer source functions.

Disabled
See basic FLX Flag operation

Restrictions
FLX Flag must be enabled
(In addition to FLX Flag incompatibilities), incompatible with JAC, LEV, LOS, NAD and ZEN Flags

Notes
  1. The use is best explained by an example:
    if the *FLG section of driver table contains the following Flags:
    *FLG
         COO FLX MTX RAD SFC TRA
    
    and the *TAN/*LEV section contains
    *LEV
         10 20 30
    
    then the following files are generated:
    coo_10000.asc, coo_20000.asc, coo_30000.asc
    Contain the cooling rates at 10, 20, 30km (as would have been generated without the MTX flag)
    coo_10000_10000.asc, coo_10000_20000.asc ... coo_30000_30000.asc (9 files)
    File coo_i_j.asc contains the change in cooling rate at level i for a 1% increase in source function in layer j (meaning: the user-defined profile layer with base at altitude j).
    rad_10000.asc, rad_20000.asc, rad_30000.asc
    Contain the net fluxes at 10, 20, 30km (as would have been generated without the MTX flag)
    rad_10000_10000.asc, rad_10000_20000.asc ... rad_30000_30000.asc (9 files)
    File rad_i_j.asc contains change in net flux at level i for a 1% increase in source function in layer j.
    tra_10000.asc, tra_20000.asc, tra_30000.asc
    contain the absorption coefficient (/cm3) which can be used, in conjunction with the flux transmittances to calculate Escape Functions.
    tra_10000_10000.asc, tra_10000_20000.asc ... tra_30000_30000.asc (9 files)
    File tra_i_j.asc contains the flux transmittance between level i and level j (consequently tra_i_i.asc contains 1's, and tra_i_j.asc = tra_j_i.asc).
