Exoplanetary and Planetary Radio Emission Simulator (ExPRES) V1.0.0
- src contains the ExPRES code IDL routines.
- mfl stores the magnetic field lines used by ExPRES. When installing the code, precomputed data files must be retrieved from http://maser.obspm.fr/support/expres/mfl. See this file for more details.
- ephem stores ephemerides files used by ExPRES. IDL saveset files (.sav) are available for precomputed ephemerides. Other files (plain text format, .txt) will be stored here, and correspond to the output of the MIRIADE IMCCE webservice calls.
- cdawlib is a placeholder for the NASA/GSFC CDAWLib library, required for the CDF files.
config.ini.template file (in src) must be renamed
config.ini and edited with the adequate paths:
cdf_dist_pathmust point to the local CDF distribution directory.
ephem_pathis the path to the directory where the precomputed ephemerides files are located, and where temporary ephemerides files will be written.
mfl_pathis the path to the directory where the precomputed magnetic field line data.
save_pathis the path where the data will be saved.
ffmpeg_pathpoints to the
ps2pdf_pathpoints to the
Examples are provided in the header of config.ini.template.
Running the code
The code has been tested under IDL 8.5. You must have a functional installation of IDL 8.5 (or better) on your system.
The operation are initiated with the following batch script:
This compiles all the necessary routines in advance. Then the simulation can be launched:
file.json is the input parameter file. This file must comply with the ExPRES-v1.0 JSON-shema
