Workspace Method covmat_sxAddBlock


Add a block to the a priori covariance matrix covmat_sx

This functions adds a given matrix as a block in the covariance
matrix covmat_sx. The position of the block can be given by the generic
arguments ``i`` and ``j``, which should give the index of the retrieval quantity in
jacobian_quantities, which is given just by the order the quantities have been
added to the retrieval.

If arguments ``i`` and ``j`` are omitted, the block will be added as diagonal block
for the last added retrieval quantity.

If provided, the index ``i`` must be less than or equal to ``j``. Also the provided
block must be consistent with the corresponding retrieval quantities.
