Computes the scale height of a quantity measured by the O2 sounder. See also fitLapseRate and fitLapseRateAndScaleHeightASDM.


  • filename: csv file produced by the oxygen sounder
  • profile: which time-series profile to fit (-1 means to compute all)
  • quantity: RH, VD, LD (relative humidity, vapor density, liquid density).
  • for 1 profile: scaleHeightFromGround, scaleHeightValue, groundValue
  • for multiple: medianDay, madDay, medianNight, madNight, medianTotal, madTotal
