Classes

Iono(infile, *args, **kwargs)

A class for handling 2D output from the Ridley Ionosphere Model.

OvalDebugFile(infile, *args, **kwargs)

The auroral oval calculations in RIM may spit out special debug files that are extremely useful.

Functions

fix_format(filename[, finalize])

Some 2D output files for RIM/RidleySerial have a broken format: values for the same lat-lon entry are split across two lines.

get_iono_cb([ct_name])

Several custom colorbars used by RIM and AMIE have become standard when visualizing data from these models.

tex_label(varname)

Many variable names used in the Ridley Ionosphere Model look much better in LaTeX format with their proper Greek letters.
