Column Density Calculator

This program will calculate the total column density from the rotational transitions (up to J = 7-->8) for the most commonly observed interstellar molecules (see Section 3.1 of Curran et al., 2004, MNRAS 352,563 ).

If there are other molecules/transitions you'd like included, just send me the Einstein A-coefficients/dipole moments.
