Workspace Method WriteMolTau
Writes a 'molecular_tau_file' as required for libRadtran.
The libRadtran (www.libradtran.org) 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).
