4.1.1 get atmospheric profile

Description

Get the atmospheric profile.

Arguments

 Outputs thickness m thickness of every atmospheric layer - Quantum with a vector value and unit of length, m allowed: doublem Default: temperature K temperature of every atmospheric layer - Quantum with a vector value and unit of temperature, K allowed: doubleK Default: watermassdensity kg.m-3 water vapor mass density content of every atmospheric layer - Quantum with a vector value and unit of kg.m-3 allowed: doublekg.m-3 Default: water m-3 water vapor content of every atmospheric layer - Quantum with a vector value and unit of m-3 allowed: doublem-3 Default: pressure Pa pressure of every atmospheric layer - Quantum with a vector value and unit of Pascal allowed: doublePa Default: O3 m-3 O3 of every atmospheric layer - Quantum with a vector value and unit of m-3 allowed: doublem-3 Default: CO m-3 CO of every atmospheric layer - Quantum with a vector value and unit of m-3 allowed: doublem-3 Default: N2O m-3 N2O of every atmospheric layer - Quantum with a vector value and unit of m-3 allowed: doublem-3 Default:
Returns
string

Example

p = at.getProfile()
# returns a tuple of
# 0 - string listing of layer values, and arrays of layer, 1 - thickness,
# 2 - temperature, 3 - watermassdensity, 4 - water (number density),
# 5 - pressure, 6 - O3 (number density), 7 - CO, 8 - N2O
for i in range(at.getNumLayers()):
# Print atmospheric profile returned by at.getProfile():
# Layer thickness (idx=1), Temperature (idx=2),
# Number density of water vapor(idx=4), and Pressure (idx=5)
print p[1][’value’][i], p[2][’value’][i], p[4][’value’][i],\
p[5][’value’][i]

print p[0]    # "pretty" listing of all layer parameters
