USERDEFINED_PROFILE_PLANE¶
A two dimensional user defined climatology which varies both in altitude
and angle (e.g. latitude) in a specified plane. Interpolation is done bilinearly. For points
not in the plane, the angle is determined by projecting the point onto the plane.
The values
passed into ISKClimatology::SetPropertyUserDefined()
must be
a 2D array stored in the order, values( heights, lats)
.
i.e. heights varies most rapidly and lats varies the slowest:
mjd = 52393.3792987115;
climate = ISKClimatology(‘USERDEFINED_PROFILE_PLANE’)
climate.UpdateCache( [0,0,0,mjd])
Properties¶

Heights
¶
Sets the height grid that will be used in subsequent calls to
SetPropertyUserDefined()
. The heights must be in ascending order and specify the height of the grid point above sea level in meters.The default is an empty array 

Angles
¶
Sets the angular grid used for the climatology. This must be set before adding any species to the climatology. The angles are specified in degrees. An angle of 0 corresponds to the reference vector of the plane and angles increase towards the direction of normal cross reference.

NormalAndReference
¶
A 6 element array. The first 3 elements define the unit vector normal to the plane (X,Y,Z). The last 3 elements define a reference vector in the plane that defines the direction of angle zero. i.e defines the xaxis of the plane.

DoLogInterpolation
¶
Instructs the object to perform interpolation of the logs of the data on the heightgrid.
n Setting 0 Scalar profiles are interpolated linearly in altitude. 1 Scalar profiles are interpolated using logarithmic interpolation.
