Bugs/updates in earlier versions have been fixed/implemented in later versions.

DateType/StatusDescription
17/12/2020Bug - fixedAffects: RTTOV-SCATT hydrotable generation code when different permittivity models are specified for different hydrometeors. This is an unlikely usage scenario and the bug does not affect the hydrotables available for download on the coefficients download web page, nor does it affect any RTTOV-SCATT simulations. (RTTOV v13.0 only).

Issue: incorrect array indexes mean that the water/ice permittivity models for the previous hydrometeor are used for the current hydrometeor instead of those specified by the user.

Fix: download this source file to the src/mw_scatt_coef/ directory and recompile RTTOV (a clean compilation is not necessary).
