Hi Matt,

You mean just in this Enzo special case or in general?

Enzo (when run with multiple species) does have a spatially varying
gamma, but it's not written out to the file -- it's calculated from
partial pressure and includes contributions from H2 as well.  I would
say that this shouldn't be dealt with directly, though.
