Workspace Method opt_prop_bulkCalc


Calculates bulk absorption extinction at one atmospheric grid point.

This WSM sums up the monochromatic absorption vectors and
extinction matrices of all scattering elements (abs_vec_spt and
ext_mat_spt, respectively) weighted by their respective
particle number density given by pnd_field, for a single location
within the cloudbox, given by scat_p_index, scat_lat_index, and
The resulting  extinction matrix is added to the workspace variable
