[CIG-MC] I need a material model with depth dependent density (only).

You will need to modify the code. You can use these parameters to provide
your density profile:
reference_state=0
refstate_file=refstate.dat
The file refstate.dat will have nodez lines, and each line has 7 columns.
The meaning of the columns are:
rho, g, alpha, cp, not_used, not_used, not_used
You can modify the code to use one of the not_used column for your
depth-dependent \Delta \rho.
