Workspace Method WriteMolTau


Writes a 'molecular_tau_file' as required for libRadtran.

The libRadtran ( radiative transfer package is a 
comprehensive package for various applications, it can be used to 
compute radiances, irradiances, actinic fluxes, ... for the solar 
and the thermal spectral ranges. Absorption is usually treated using 
k-distributions or other parameterizations. For calculations with high 
spectral resolution it requires absorption coefficients from an external 
line-by-line model. Using this method, arts generates a file that can be 
used by libRadtran (option molecular_tau_file).
