Re: [idvusers] IDV vertical profiles - standard 1D models

Hi Stu-

For geophysics it would be very useful to have the IDV recognize a 1D vertical profile representing a standard earth model varying with depth, seismic velocities say, and use it to compute offsets from 3D grids. To do this now we have to make a 3D grid that has the same values at all lat,long points and differs only in depth. (That is a workaround for Rich Signell's problem too). I suppose a standard atmosphere might be useful too.

Bill Fingerhut at Lyndon State has an example of creating
a standard atmosphere grid matching the domain of the offset
grid.  We use this in the workshop materials:

This model could be used in other contexts.
