% 2) vd to the laser reference at the time of the measurement.
% vd = vdcorr(vd,VCC,flref,lref);
% vd is the vd from invert.p
% VCC is the Volume Conversion Constant for your instrument
% (instrument-specific). It can be found in the InstrumentData.txt file for
% LISST-100X, LISST-STX and LISST-SL instruments and in the .LOG file for
% LISST-Portable and LISST-StreamSide instruments.
% flref is the factory laser reference value for you instrument. For
% LISST-100X and LISST-STX instruments this is element 36 in the
% factory_zsc file. For LISST-SL instruments, this is element 40 in the
% factory_zsc file. For LISST-Portable and LISST-StreamSide instruments,
% the flref can be found on the ‘Get Background’ display or in the .LOG file.
% lref is the laser reference value during measurement. For LISST-100X and
% LISST-STX it is element 36 in the .DAT file. For LISST-SL it is element
% 40 in the .DAT file. For LISST-Portable and LISST-StreamSide it is
% element 36 in the .DAT file.
