Workspace Method VectorZtanToZa1D


Converts a set of geometrical tangent altitudes to zenith angles.

The tangent altitudes are given to the function as a vector, which
are converted to a generic vector of zenith angles. The position of
the sensor is given by the WSV sensor_pos. The function works
only for 1D. The zenith angles are always set to be positive.
