Workspace Method sensor_checkedCalc


Checks consistency of the sensor variables.

The following WSVs are examined: f_grid, sensor_pos, sensor_los,
transmitter_pos, mblock_dlos_grid, antenna_dim,
sensor_response, sensor_response_f, sensor_response_pol,
and sensor_response_dlos.

If any of these variables are changed, then this method shall be
called again (no automatic check that this is fulfilled!).

The main tests are that dimensions of sensor variables agree
with other settings, e.g., the size of f_grid, atmosphere_dim,
stokes_dim, etc.

If any test fails, there is an error. Otherwise, sensor_checked
is set to 1.
