Workspace Method HydrotableCalc


Creates a look-up table of scattering properties.

The table produced largely follows the format used in RTTOV-SCATT for
its "hydrotables". The table is returned as a GriddedField4, with
dimensions (in order):
   Scattering property
   Frequency (equals WSV f_grid)
   Temperature (equals GIN T_grid)
   Particle content [kg/m3]  (equals GIN wc_grid)

Four scattering properties are calculated. They are (in order)
   Extinction [m-1]
   Single scattering albedo [-]
   Asymmetry parameter [-]
   Radar reflectivity [m2]
