Workspace Method iySurfaceFastem


Usage of FASTEM for emissivity and reflectivity of water surfaces.

This method allows usage of the FASTEM model inside
iy_surface_agenda. The aim is to use FASTEM in the exact same
way as done in RTTOV. For example, the transmittance for down-
welling radiation is considered. RTTOV os just 1D. Here 2D and 3D
are handled as the 1D case, the down-welling radiation is just
calculated for the directuon matching specular reflection.

The wind direction is given as the azimuth angle, counted
clockwise from north (i.e. an easterly wind is at 90 deg).
This matches the general definition of azimuth inside ARTS.
For 1D and 2D, the wind direction must be adjusted to match the
fact that the line-of-sight is locked to be at 0 deg (180 for 2D
in the case of a negative zenith angle). For 3D, the true wind
direction shall be used.

FASTEM is called by FastemStandAlone. See that WSM for further
comments on variables and limitations.
