HOM Flag

RFM Flags: Homogeneous Path Calculation



Assume path through an atmosphere containing at least two profile levels.

Incompatible with BFX, CLC, FLX, FOV, GEO, GRA, LAY, LEV, LOS, NAD, OBS, and ZEN Flags.

  1. The path conditions are specified in the *ATM section either as a series of PARAM=VALUE pairs (eg TEM=296.0) or as .atm files.

  2. If using .atm files the first file must contain only contain a single-level 'profile'. Any subsequent files will be interpolated to this HGT/PRE value. So, for example, a singe HGT value of 10km can be used to select path conditions appropriate to 10km altitude from a second .atm file containing a full profile.

  3. The SFC flag and *SFC section can be used to set any background emission.
