pyFIRI is a Python3 implementation of the FIRI-2018, a semi-empirical model of the non-auroral Earth's ionosphere D-Region.

Project description

pyFIRI is a Python3 implementation of the FIRI-2018 (Faraday‐International Reference Ionosphere), a semi-empirical D-Region model of the non-auroral Earth’s ionosphere. Previous version of the FIRI (FT-2001) is incorporated into a well-known mature International Reference Ionosphere (IRI, ) model.

If you use FIRI-2018 or pyFIRI directly or indirectly, please, cite in your research the following TWO papers:

1. Friedrich, M., Pock, C., & Torkar, K. (2018). FIRI‐2018, an updated empirical model of the lower ionosphere. Journal of Geophysical Research: Space Physics, 123, 6737– 6751.

2. Zolotov, O., Romanovskaya, Yu, & Knyazeva, M. (2021). pyFIRI - A free and open source Python software package of the non-auroral Earth’s lower ionosphere. SoftwareX., 16, 100885.

pyFIRI provides a thin Python3 wrapper around the tabulated electron density Ne profiles supplied together with the research paper by Friedrich et al.(2018, ). For internal data representation, selection, and interpolation pyFIRI relies on xarray.DataArray ( ) facilities.
