General Structure

The properties of the objects which are internally used by the simulation to calculate the desired radiometric quantities are fed into the program throungh conf files. The organisation of objects is shown in the figure below.

Overview on the general structure and relation of configuration files. I.e. simulation.conf refers to grid.conf, surface.conf, atmosphere.conf, geomtry.conf, raytracer.conf and functionals.conf and atmosphere.conf further refers to particles.conf, gases.conf and air.conf.
I prefer to use separate folders for the grid, atmosphere and surface objects in order to keep the files in a well ordered state.
