Workspace Method AtmRawRead


Reads atmospheric data from a scenario.

An atmospheric scenario includes the following data for each
position (pressure, latitude, longitude) in the atmosphere:

1. temperature field
2. the corresponding altitude field
3. vmr fields for the absorption species

The vmr fields read are governed by the species given in
abs_species. Beside gaseous species, these can also contain
purely absorbing particulate matter. In the latter case the
profiles are supposed to provide the mass content (unit kg/m3) for
clouds and precipitation rate (unit kg/m2/s) for precipitation
instead of the vmr.

The data is stored in different files. This methods reads all
files and creates the variables t_field_raw, z_field_raw and
vmr_field_raw.  nlte_field_raw is set to empty.

Files in a scenarios should be named matching the pattern of:
basename.speciesname.xml (for temperature and altitude the
expected 'speciesname' are 't' and'z', respectivly).
The files can be anywhere, but they must all be in the same
directory, selected by 'basename'. The files are chosen by the
species name. If you have more than one tag group for the same
species, the same profile will be used.
