Auroral GLOW model by Stan Solomon in Python

Auroral volume emission rate vs. wavelength, impact ionization, electron and ion densities
Auroral volume emission rate vs. wavelength, impact ionization, electron and ion densities, all vs. altitude.

I have wrapped the GLOW auroral VER model in Python, making it very easy to use the GLOW model from Python. Please leave a comment or email if it’s missing something you need.

I would like to complement Solomon’s team who generally wrote the Fortran 77 code without excessive legacy techniques and syntax errors, which made the porting much faster. I only had to make minimal modifications to bring the code up to Fortran 77 standards.
