% Compute the environment parameters for a selected planet.

 Calculate the optical fluxes, atmospheric density, and magnetic field
 at specific locations and dates at a planet, including eclipses. This
 data is required by the disturbance model. Magnetic field models are
 available for Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune. Atmospheric models are
 included for Mercury, Venus, Mars, Pluto, and Europa.
   PlanetEnvironment( planetName )
   e = PlanetEnvironment( rECI, vECI, jD, e )
   planetName  (1,:)   String name of planet for initialization
   rECI        (3,:)    Position vectors in ECI frame
   vECI        (3,:)    Velocity vectors
   jD          (1,:)    Time scalar or array in Julian date
   e            (.)     Initial structure

   e            (.)     Environment data with updated data
