CheckAtm.lin {AtmRay} | R Documentation |
Verifies that an atmosphere contains all required elements and fills in missing elements with default values.
CheckAtm.lin(ATM = list())
ATM |
List that may include characteristics of an atmosphere |
A linear atmosphere variable must contain the elements described in the "Value" section. Default values for these are as follows: z0: 0 c0: 330 wx0: 0 wy0: 0 rho0: 1.2929 * exp(-ATM$z0/6800) gc: -10^9 gwx: 0 gwy: 0 grho: -0.0001901058 * exp(-ATM$z0/6800)
Other functions may encounter problems when working with an effective sound speed gradient of zero.
List including the following elements:
z0 |
Elevation of intercept layer (m) |
c0 |
Intrinsic sound speed at intercept layer (m/s) |
wx0 |
Zonal (east-west) wind at intercept layer (m/s) |
wy0 |
Meridional (north-south) wind at intercept layer (m/s) |
rho0 |
Density at intercept layer (kg/m^3) |
gc |
Vertical intrinsic sound speed gradient (1/s) |
gwx |
Vertical zonal wind gradient (1/s) |
gwy |
Vertical meridional wind gradient (1/s) |
grho |
Vertical density gradient (kg/m^4) |
