RFM Flags

NTE Flag: Non-LTE Calculations

17AUG17

Enabled
Use vibrational temperature profiles where available.
Driver Table requires *NTE section or at least one vibrational temperature profile included via .atm files in the *ATM section.

Disabled
Assume Local Thermodynamic Equilibrium (LTE) throughout (just using kinetic temperature profile for source function).
Ignore *NTE section.

Restrictions
Incompatible with LUT Flag.

Notes
  1. Non-LTE treatment is described in Edwards et al (1993)
  2. See *NTE section for further details
