Workspace Variable nlte_field

The field of NLTE temperatures and/or ratios.

This variable gives the NLTE temperature/ratio at each crossing of
the pressure, latitude and longitude grids.  The size of the
array is the number of NLTE levels in all molecules.

The temperature/ratio for a point between the grid crossings is obtained 
by (multi-)linear interpolation of the nlte_field.

There are two types of NLTE computations available in ARTS.  One from
giving excitiation temperatures that makes the absorption/emission diverge
from LTE.  The other is to use the absolute ratios of upper-to-lower states at
the levels of interest.

Units:       [ K or % ]]

Dimensions: [ NLTE levels, p_grid, lat_grid, lon_grid ] or [ 0, 0, 0, 0 ]

Default: None

Group: EnergyLevelMap
