Workspace Method heating_ratesFromIrradiance


Calculates heating rates from the irradiance_field.

The method assumes that the heating rates depend only on the
vertical derivation of the net flux. The net flux is the sum of the
irradiance_field in upward direction and the irradiance_field
in downward direction
