.rad File: Radiance Spectrum

20NOV17

Type
Output(s), if RAD Flag enabled.

Description
Radiance spectrum [nW/cm2/st/cm-1], or
(FLX Flag enabled) Radiance Flux spectrum [W/m2/cm-1].

Filename(s)
Default is rad_[s][t].asc where [s] is the spectral range and [t] is the ray path
Different names may be specified in the *RAD section of the Driver Table.

Structure
See RFM spectral file format

Notes
  1. Radiance units are established by parameter C1 - `First Radiation Constant' - in include module phycon.inc (phycon_dat.f90 for RFM v5)
  2. The additional factor 1E-5 for Radiance Flux outputs (W rather than nW) is set by RADFAC in subroutine wrtout.for (spcout_sub.f90 for RFM v5)
