spacepy.LANLstar.LANLmax

spacepy.LANLstar.LANLmax(inputdict, extMag)[source]

Calculate last closed drift shell (Lmax)

Based on the L* artificial neural network (ANN) trained from different magnetospheric field models.

Parameters
extMaglist of string(s)

containing one or more of the following external Magnetic field models: ‘OPDYN’, ‘OPQUIET’, ‘T89’, ‘T96’, ‘T01QUIET’, ‘T01STORM’, ‘T05’

inputdictdictionary

containing the following keys, each entry is a list or array. Note the keys for the above models are different.

– For OPDYN:

[‘Year’, ‘DOY’, ‘Hr’, ‘Dst’, ‘dens’, ‘velo’, ‘BzIMF’, ‘PA’]

– For OPQUIET:

[‘Year’, ‘DOY’, ‘Hr’, ‘Dst’, ‘dens’, ‘velo’, ‘BzIMF’, ‘PA’]

– For T89:

[‘Year’, ‘DOY’, ‘Hr’, ‘Kp’, ‘Pdyn’, ‘ByIMF’, ‘BzIMF’, ‘PA’]

– For T96:

[‘Year’, ‘DOY’, ‘Hr’, ‘Dst’, ‘Pdyn’, ‘ByIMF’, ‘BzIMF’,’PA’]

– For T01QUIET:

[‘Year’, ‘DOY’, ‘Hr’, ‘Dst’, ‘Pdyn’, ‘ByIMF’, ‘BzIMF’, ‘G1’, ‘G2’,’PA’]

– For T01STORM:

[‘Year’, ‘DOY’, ‘Hr’, ‘Dst’, ‘Pdyn’, ‘ByIMF’, ‘BzIMF’, ‘G2’, ‘G3’, ‘PA’]

– For T05:

[‘Year’, ‘DOY’, ‘Hr’, ‘Dst’, ‘Pdyn’, ‘ByIMF’, ‘BzIMF’, ‘W1’,’W2’,’W3’,’W4’,’W5’,’W6’, ‘PA’]

Dictionaries with numpy vectors are allowed.

Returns
