Workspace Method ybatchMetProfilesClear


This method is used for simulating ARTS for metoffice model fields
for clear sky conditions.

This method reads in met_amsu_data which contains the
lat-lon of the metoffice profile files as a Matrix. It then
loops over the number of profiles and corresponding to each
longitude create the appropriate profile basename. Then,
Corresponding to each basename we have temperature field, altitude
field, humidity field, and particle number density field. The
temperature field and altitude field are stored in the same dimensions
as t_field_raw and z_field_raw. The oxygen and nitrogen VMRs are
set to constant values of 0.209 and 0.782, respectively and are used
along with humidity field to generate vmr_field_raw. 

The three fields t_field_raw, z_field_raw, and vmr_field_raw are
given as input to met_profile_calc_agenda which is called in this
method. See documentation of WSM met_profile_calc_agenda for more
information on this agenda. 

The method also converts satellite zenith angle to appropriate
sensor_los. It also sets the p_grid and cloudbox_limits
from the profiles inside the function
