Adding background to simulations (background / std)


Add background to simulations to represent concentrations with a regional model, including influence of emissions outside the domain of simulations.

This is to be applied for Rödenbeck approach inversions, with a beckground pre-computed at correct locations from a global model with regional emissions switched-off.

See details of this approach in Rödenbeck et al., 2009.
