README

Data and model parameter files supplement the paper:

Title: "Polar ionospheric currents and high temporal resolution geomagnetic field models"

Authors: Kloss, C. and Finlay, C. and Laundal, K.M. and Olsen, N.

Doi: 10.1093/gji/ggad325

Files Description

The following files are available:

  1. Model-A_datafile.h5
  2. Reference.mat
  3. Model-A.mat
  4. Model-B.mat
  5. readme.txt

(1) Model-A_datafile.h5:

The file stores the processed magnetic data used to estimate our geomagnetic field model called Model-A. Data is organized as HDF-datasets within the HDF-group "vector". Each HDF-dataset comes with the attributes "UNITS", "DESCRIPTION" and "FORMAT", which provide additional information on the HDF-dataset.

Python code example (using h5py Python package):

>>> import h5py as h5

>>> file = h5.File('Model-A_datafile.h5', 'r')

>>> print(list(file['vector'].keys())) # list all data variables

>>> print(file["vector/Time"].attrs["UNITS"].decode()) # units of "Time"

>>> file.close()

(vii) CHAOS-7 model and its updates are available at http://www.spacecenter.dk/files/magnetic-models/CHAOS-7/.

(2-4) Reference.mat (similarly for Model-A.mat, Model-B.mat):

Model parameter file of our estimated model in mat-format, following the style of the CHAOS model releases.

Chaosmagpy (documentation, doi: https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3352398 ) can be used to load the mat-formatted file and evaluate the non-ionospheric parts of the model. The ionospheric part of our model is unfortunately not supported at the moment. However, we have plans to make this possible in a future version of chaosmagpy.

Python code example (using ChaosMagPy Python package):

>>> import chaosmagpy as cp

>>> model_a = cp.CHAOS.from_mat('Model-A.mat) # load model file

>>> B_int = model_a.synth_values_tdep(...) # evaluate time-dependent internal field
