Project description


Modelling the atmosphere is a complicated task since many variables play a role on the different thermodynamic conditions: solar-fluxes, latitude and longitude position, diffusion of the different gasses...

Since the early days of aviation and astronautics, scientists have tried to develop different models which take into account all the previous parameters in order to get the most accurate results. In particular, we care about density since it is directly related to drag force and therefore with orbital decay among time.

This package is not only a collection of atmospheric routines but also a tribute to all those people who developed them during the early days of astronautics.

Installation for developers

This Python package makes use of a tool called [Flit]( In order to install the package in development mode, please run the following commands:

  1. Execute pip flit install
  2. Move inside the atmopy repository folder and run flit install --symlink
  3. Run nox for checking that atmopy was installed as expected.
