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 x-axis of the plane.

DoLogInterpolation

Instructs the object to perform interpolation of the logs of the data on the height-grid.

n Setting
0 Scalar profiles are interpolated linearly in altitude.
1 Scalar profiles are interpolated using logarithmic interpolation.
