Workspace Method complex_refr_indexIceWarren84


Refractive index of ice following Warren84 parameterization.

Calculates complex refractive index of Ice 1H for wavelengths
between 45 nm and 8.6 m.
For wavelengths above 167 microns, temperature dependence is
included for temperatures between 213 and 272K.
Mainly intended for applications in Earth ice
clouds and snow, not other planets or interstellar space;
the temperature dependence or crystalline form of ice may be
incorrect for these latter applications.
