OUTppath_field(ArrayOfPpath)An array meant to build up the necessary geometries for radiative field calculations.
INppath_agenda(Agenda)Agenda calculating complete propagation paths.
INppath_lmax(Numeric)Maximum length between points describing propagation paths.
INppath_lraytrace(Numeric)Maximum length of ray tracing steps when determining propagation paths.
INatmgeom_checked(Index)OK-flag for the geometry of the model atmosphere.
INf_grid(Vector)The frequency grid for monochromatic pencil beam calculations.
INcloudbox_on(Index)Flag to activate the cloud box.
INcloudbox_checked(Index)OK-flag for variables associated with the cloudbox.
INppath_inside_cloudbox_do(Index)Flag to perform ray tracing inside the cloudbox.
INsensor_pos(Matrix)The sensor position for each measurement block.
INsensor_los(Matrix)The sensor line-of-sight (LOS) for each measurement block.
INrte_pos2(Vector)A second geographical position to define the geometry for radiative transfer calculations.
