Workspace Method abs_lookupSetupWide


Set up input parameters for abs_lookupCalc for a wide range of
atmospheric conditions.

This method can be used to set up parameters for a lookup table that
really covers all reasonable atmospheric conditions.

Reference profiles of T and H2O will be constant, so that the
different dimensions in the lookup table are actually "orthogonal",
unlike the traditional case where we have pressure dependent reference
profiles. This makes the table numerically somewhat more robust then
the traditional ones, and it makes it straightforward to calculate the
accuracy for the different interpolations with abs_lookupTestAccuracy.

You can give min an max values for the atmospheric conditions. The
default values are chosen such that they cover the value range over
the complete Chevallier91L data set, and a bit more. The statistics
of the Chevallier91L data are:

min(p)   / max(p)   [Pa]:  1 / 104960
min(T)   / max(T)   [K]:   158.21 / 320.39
min(H2O) / max(H2O) [VMR]: -5.52e-07 / 0.049
