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, https://iri.gsfc.nasa.gov/ ) model.

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

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. https://doi.org/10.1029/2018JA025437

pyFIRI provides a thin Python3 wrapper around the tabulated electron density Ne profiles supplied together with the research paper by Friedrich et al.(2018, https://doi.org/10.1029/2018JA025437 ). For internal data representation, selection, and interpolation pyFIRI relies on xarray.DataArray ( https://xarray.pydata.org/ ) facilities.
