RFM Driver Table Sections

*NTE Section: Non-LTE Data

23OCT17

Type
Secondary Section - activated by NTE Flag.

Description
Filenames of vibrational temperature profiles and partition functions for non-LTE calculations.

Format
Multiple fields, arbitrary order
FieldTypeDescription
FILNTE C*200 Name of .nte File
DEFNTE C*200 Default .nte Filename template (contains '*' character)
With the GRA Flag enabled, ie two-dimensional atmosphere, a horizontal angle ψ can be appended to the filename, enclosed in a pair of brackets (...) (no spaces) (RFM v4.33 onwards).
QualifierTypeDescriptionRange
(PSI) R*4 Horizontal angle [deg] -90:+90

Notes
  1. If a filename template is supplied, first all the explicitly specified files are read, then '*' character in the template is expanded to the absorber name of any molecules for which vibrational temperature data has not yet been loaded and, if the file exists, the data is read in.
  2. If only vibrational temperature profiles are required (and not partition functions), these can also be supplied via .atm files in the *ATM section.
  3. If a horizontal angle (PSI) is appended to the filename but the GRA flag is not enabled, the angle is ignored (and a warning message written to the runlog file).
  4. If no horizontal angle (PSI) is appended to the filename but the GRA flag is enabled, an angle Ψ=0 [deg] is assumed for the file contents.

Example
*NTE
      co2_std.nte     ! CO2 vibrational temperatures for US Std Atmosphere
      h2o_std.nte     ! H2O vibrational temperatures for US Std Atmosphere 
      *_new.nte       ! default filename for other gases, eg 'o3_new.nte'
