IRI2016 ionosphere model from Python and Matlab

image

Python and Matlab interfaces to the International Reference Ionosphere (IRI) 2016 model. A Fortran compiler and CMake or Meson is required to build the IRI2016 code.

Install

Prerequisites

  • Python >= 3.6
  • Ninja-build obtained by:
    • Linux: apt install ninja-build
    • MacOS/Homebrew: brew install ninja
    • Windows Chocolatey: cinst -y ninja
    • direct download and extract, put directory in PATH environment variable.
  • Fortran compiler--just about any modern Fortran compiler will do. Here's how to get Gfortran:
    • Linux: apt install gfortran
    • Mac: brew install gcc
    • Windows

and then install latest release:

pip install iri2016

if you want the latest development version:

git clone https://github.com/space-physics/iri2016

pip install -e iri2016

Usage

  • Altitude Profile: plot density and temperatures vs altitude

    python AltitudeProfile.py 2003-11-21T12 -11.95 -76.77

  • Time profile: plot densities and height at the peak of F2, F2, and E regions vs UTC

    python TimeProfile.py 2014-11-21 2014-11-22 1 -11.95 -76.77
