Workspace Method ScatSpeciesScatAndMetaRead


Reads single scattering data and scattering meta data for one
scattering species.

This method takes a string array as input containing the location
(path and filename) of the single scattering data. Location of
corresponding scattering meta data is derived applying a naming
convention: ending '.xml*' is replaced by '.meta.xml' (search for
zipped files is done automatically).

All scattering elements read in one call of the method are assigned
to one and the same scattering species. That is, reading in data for
a bunch of scattering species can be realized by multiple call of
this method. Assignment to scattering species is in the order of the
calls (i.e., first method call reads data for first scat_species
entry, second call for second scat_species entry and so on).
Note that no two scattering elements of the same scattering species
are allowed to be equal in size*

Important note:
The order of the filenames for the single scattering data files has to
exactly correspond to the order of the scattering meta data files.
