ctapipe.instrument.get_atmosphere_profile_functions(atmosphere_name='paranal', with_units=True)[source]#

Deprecated since version v0.16.0: use ctapipe.atmosphere profiles from EventSource instead

Gives atmospheric profile as a continuous function thickness( altitude), and it’s inverse altitude(thickness) in m and g/cm^2 respectively.

atmosphere_name: str

identifier of atmosphere profile

with_units: bool

if true, return functions that accept and return unit quantities. Otherwise assume units are ‘m’ and ‘g cm-2’

functions: thickness(alt), alt(thickness)
