class eradiate.scenes.atmosphere.HeterogeneousAtmosphere(id='atmosphere', geometry='plane_parallel', molecular_atmosphere=None, particle_layers=NOTHING, zgrid=None, *, scale=None)[source]#

Bases: AbstractHeterogeneousAtmosphere

Heterogeneous atmosphere scene element [heterogeneous].

Parameters:
  • id (str, optional, default: "atmosphere") – Identifier of the current scene element.

  • geometry (SceneGeometry or dict or str, optional, default: "plane_parallel") – Parameters defining the basic geometry of the scene. Note if the atmosphere is used in a simulation, the experiment has all control over the atmosphere’s geometry and is going to set it. Therefore, in such a case it is best to define the geometry at the experiment level. When the atmosphere is used standalone, care must be taken to ensure that the geometry is consistent with the vertical extent of the atmosphere.

  • scale (float, optional) – If set, the extinction coefficient is scaled by the corresponding amount during computation.

  • molecular_atmosphere (MolecularAtmosphere or dict, optional, default: None) – Molecular atmosphere. May be specified as a dictionary interpreted by atmosphere_factory; in that case, the "type" parameter may be omitted and will automatically be set to "molecular".

  • particle_layers (list of ParticleLayer, optional, default: []) – List of particle layers. Elements may be specified as dictionaries interpreted by atmosphere_factory; in that case, the type parameter may be omitted and will automatically be set to "particle_layer".

  • zgrid (ZGrid, optional) – A high-resolution layer altitude mesh on which the radiative properties of the components are interpolated. If unset, a default grid with one layer per 100 m (or 10 layers if the atmosphere object height is less than 100 m) is used.

Fields:
  • id (str or None) – Identifier of the current scene element.

  • geometry (SceneGeometry) – Parameters defining the basic geometry of the scene.

  • scale (float or None) – If set, the extinction coefficient is scaled by the corresponding amount during computation.

  • molecular_atmosphere (MolecularAtmosphere or None) – Molecular atmosphere.

  • particle_layers (list of ParticleLayer) – List of particle layers.

eval_albedo(si, zgrid=None)[source]#

Evaluate albedo spectrum based on a spectral context. This method dispatches evaluation to specialized methods depending on the active mode.

Parameters:
  • si (SpectralIndex) – Spectral index.

  • zgrid (ZGrid, optional) – Altitude grid on which evaluation is performed. If unset, an instance-specific default is used (see zgrid).

Returns:

quantity – Evaluated spectrum as an array with length equal to the number of layers.

eval_mfp(ctx)[source]#

Compute a typical scattering mean free path. This rough estimate can be used e.g. to compute a distance guaranteeing that the medium can be considered optically thick.

Parameters:

ctx (KernelContext) – A context data structure containing parameters relevant for kernel dictionary generation.

Returns:

mfp (quantity) – Mean free path estimate.

eval_radprops(si, zgrid=None, optional_fields=False)#

Evaluate the extinction coefficients and albedo profiles.

Parameters:
  • si (SpectralIndex) – Spectral index.

  • zgrid (ZGrid, optional) – Altitude grid on which evaluation is performed. If unset, an instance-specific default is used (see zgrid).

  • optional_fields (bool, optional, default: False) – If True, also output the absorption and scattering coefficients, not required for scene setup but useful for analysis and debugging.

Returns:

Dataset – A dataset with the following variables:

  • sigma_t: extinction coefficient;

  • albedo: albedo;

  • sigma_a: absorption coefficient (optional);

  • sigma_s: scattering coefficient (optional).

and coordinates:

  • z: altitude.

eval_sigma_a(si, zgrid=None)[source]#

Evaluate absorption coefficient given a spectral context.

Parameters:
  • si (SpectralIndex) – Spectral index.

  • zgrid (ZGrid, optional) – Altitude grid on which evaluation is performed. If unset, an instance-specific default is used (see zgrid).

Returns:

quantity – Particle layer extinction coefficient.

eval_sigma_s(si, zgrid=None)[source]#

Evaluate scattering coefficient given a spectral context.

Parameters:
  • si (SpectralIndex) – Spectral index.

  • zgrid (ZGrid, optional) – Altitude grid on which evaluation is performed. If unset, an instance-specific default is used (see zgrid).

Returns:

quantity – Particle layer scattering coefficient.

eval_sigma_t(si, zgrid=None)[source]#

Evaluate extinction coefficient given a spectral context.

Parameters:
  • si (SpectralIndex) – Spectral index.

  • zgrid (ZGrid, optional) – Altitude grid on which evaluation is performed. If unset, an instance-specific default is used (see zgrid).

Returns:

quantity – Particle layer extinction coefficient.

eval_transmittance(si, interaction='extinction')#

Evaluate the atmosphere’s transmittance with respect to specific interaction.

Parameters:
  • si (SpectralIndex) – Spectral index.

  • interaction (str, optional, default: "extinction") – Interaction type. One of "extinction", "absorption", "scattering".

Returns:

quantity – Total atmosphere transmittance.

eval_transmittance_accross_spectral_set(interaction='extinction', quad_spec=None)#

Evaluate the atmosphere’s transmittance with respect to extinction accross the spectral set emitted by the atmosphere.

Parameters:

quad_spec (QuadSpec, optional) – Quadrature specifications.

Returns:

DataArray – Atmosphere’s transmittance with respect to extinction tabulated against the spectral coordinate.

spectral_set(quad_spec=None)[source]#

The spectral set emitted by the atmosphere (optional).

Notes

Typically, absorbing molecular atmosphere are characterized by an absorption dataset which tabulates the absorption coefficient over some spectral set, e.g. wavelengths, CKD bin, etc. This property returns the spectral set associated with the absorption dataset. In experiments, the spectral set emitted by the atmosphere is given the highest priority when creating the experiment’s spectral set.
