Workspace Method ScatSpeciesPndAndScatAdd


Adds single scattering data and particle number densities for one
scattering species.

The WSV pnd_field_raw containing particle number densities for
all scattering species can be generated outside ARTS, for example
by using PyARTS or atmlab. This method reads this data as well as
its corresponding single scattering data, which is added as a new
scattering species to scat_data.
This method needs as input an ArrayOfString holding the filenames
of the single scattering data for each scattering element and a
file containing the corresponding pnd_field_raw. In contrast to
the scattering data, the pnd-fields are stored in a single XML-file
containing an ArrayofGriddedField3, i.e. holding the pnd-field data
of all scattering elements.

Important note:
The order of the filenames for the scattering data files has to
correspond to the order of the pnd-fields, stored in the variable
