Workspace Method psdMonoDispersive


Mono-dispersive PSD, with number density given.

This is a 1-parameter PSD, i.e. pnd_agenda_input shall have one
column and pnd_agenda_input_names shall contain a single string.
The input data in pnd_agenda_input shall be number densities, in
unit of [#/m3]. The naming used is pnd_agenda_input_names is free
but the same name must be used in particle_bulkprop_names and

The method checks that the scattering species indicated (by
*species_index*) has a single element, and just inserts the provided
number density in psd_data.

If temperature is outside [*t_min*,*t_max*] psd=0 and dpsd=0 if
picky=0, or an error is thrown if picky=1.
