Turbulent Velocity (vturbi)

This parameter allows extra line broadening to be introduced into the calculation of the synthetic spectrum. The value is in km s$^{-1}$, and the line shapes are assumed to be Gaussian. If a small value is input, then the broadening is assumed to be the greater of vturbi and the local thermal velocity of the absorbing ion.
