Vertical Motion Methods

The trajectory vertical motion method is set by a single digit in the CONTROL file. This method would apply to all meteorological data files. The default value is to use the vertical velocity data fields supplied with the meteorologcal model data.

Note that methods 1,2,3,4 are only approximations. Instead of remapping the data fields to these surfaces, a vertical velocity is computed that would maintain the trajectory on the selected surface.
