Atmospheric Receptor File: Data

This section describes the different data field found in the Atmospheric Receptor Files. Both receptor files, Snapshot and Time Series File, hold the same data fields (see Receptor Files).

Data contained in the Atmospheric Receptor Files:

Date - Date of the Model Time (String)
Time - Model Time of Clock at Output (String)
