spacepy.empiricals.getSolarProtonSpectra(norm=32000000.0, gamma=- 0.96, E0=15.0, Emin=0.1, Emax=600, nsteps=100)[source]

Returns a SpaceData with energy and fluence spectra of solar particle events

The formulation follows that of: Ellison and Ramaty ApJ 298: 400-408, 1985 dJ/dE = K^{-gamma}exp(-E/E0)

and the defualt values are the 10/16/2003 SEP event of: Mewaldt, R. A., et al. (2005), J. Geophys. Res., 110, A09S18, doi:10.1029/2005JA011038.
