Dear Patrick, Thanks for your prompt reply! I would like to use FASTEM in a simple 1D forward model configuration, so no retrievals of surface properties will be needed. I am particularly interested in FASTEM6 - not sure how its versions align with those of ARTS. Also, I think a simple prescribing of surface wind, temperature and salinity as Numerics would be sufficient for my purposes.
I have started building my controlfile upon the classroom exercise #2 (rtcalc) included in the release package, so if you could show me how to include FASTEM into that example, that would be just great. Please let me know if you need more info about the planned usage to give me a hint on this.

It depends on e.g. * Do you want to retrieve any surface properties? * Do you want to set specific wind speeds etc, or do you want to obtain wind speed etc. by interpolation from some data? Can you give us some more information?
