Krishan Khurana’s Magnetic Field Model written in IDL
The Khurana magnetic field model is an empirical model based on data from the Galileo spacecraft. The code was originally written in Fortran 77/90 but has since been converted into IDL (Interactive Data Language developed by ITT). Below is the code itself along with a few sample programs for getting started. It is recommended that you have at least IDL version 7.0.4 to run these procedures.
- Field Model – kk_2009.pro
- Usage Example – sample.pro – sample output
- Fieldline Tracing Example – sampleTrace.pro
The following images are generated from the sampleTrace.pro procedure.
