Workspace Method complex_refr_indexIceMatzler06


Refractive index of ice following Matzler06 parameterization.

Calculates temperature dependent complex refractive index of
hexagonal ice at microwave and sub-mm frequencies (10MHz-3Tz).

This parametrization is also applied by the microwave and
submm-wave part of the Warren08 model.
