Workspace Variable scat_meta

An Array of scattering meta data (scat_meta_single).

The array holds the meta data for all scattering elements. For a
description of the meta data contents refer to the documentation
of scat_data_single.

Corresponding to scat_data, it is organized in terms of scattering
species (i.e., one sub-array per scattering species holding one
scat_meta_single instance per scattering element assigned to this
scattering species). It is primarily used for particle size and shape
distribution calculations using pnd_fieldCalcFromParticleBulkProps.
It is also applied for deducing microphysical characterizations of
scattering species, e.g., by particle_massesFromMetaData.

Note: This array must contain as many elements as scat_data (on
both array levels).

Usage: Set by the user.

Dimensions: [scattering species][scattering elements]
