Syntax
public class CssiSolarGeophysicalData : SolarGeophysicalData

The CssiSolarGeophysicalData type exposes the following members.

Constructors
  NameDescription
Protected methodCssiSolarGeophysicalData
Initializes a new instance as a copy of an existing instance.

Properties
  NameDescription
Public propertyIsThreadSafe
Gets a value indicating whether the methods on this instance are safe to call from multiple threads simultaneously.
(Overrides SolarGeophysicalDataIsThreadSafe.)
Public propertyObservationSecondsOfDay
Gets the number of seconds since the start of midnight UTC at which the observations of the solar flux are assumed to be made. This indicates the time of day that each observation takes effect. When querying for values prior to that point of the day, the previous day's observations are used. By default, this is 20 hours UTC.
Public propertyUseApToComputeKpValues
Gets a value indicating whether the geophysical data set was configured to use the Ap geomagnetic flux indices to compute the Kp values, instead of using the Kp values reported natively in the raw data. By default, this is set to true. Using Ap values to compute Kp can be more accurate since the Kp indices are approximated when represented in the file.
Public propertyUseDailyFluxData
Gets a value indicating whether this instance always uses daily values for the Geomagnetic Flux instead of producing the 3-hour values when calling ComputeThreeHourKpValues(JulianDate) or ComputeThreeHourApValues(JulianDate). If daily values are used, the value for that day will be repeated for all 3-hour values.

Methods
  NameDescription
Public methodClone
Clones this object using the specified context.
(Overrides SolarGeophysicalDataClone(CopyContext).)
Public methodComputeApDailyAverage
Calculates the arithmetic average of the eight ap geomagnetic flux values for the given day, rounded to the nearest whole value.
(Overrides SolarGeophysicalDataComputeApDailyAverage(JulianDate).)
Public methodComputeApValue
Computes the geomagnetic flux ap value at the given date.
(Overrides SolarGeophysicalDataComputeApValue(JulianDate).)
Public methodComputeAverageSolarRadioFlux
Gets the 81 day average solar radiation flux value centered on the given date.
(Overrides SolarGeophysicalDataComputeAverageSolarRadioFlux(JulianDate).)
Public methodComputeKpDailyAverage
Calculates the sum of the array of the eight ap geomagnetic flux values for the given day.
(Overrides SolarGeophysicalDataComputeKpDailyAverage(JulianDate).)
Public methodComputeKpValue
Computes the geomagnetic flux kp value at the given date.
(Overrides SolarGeophysicalDataComputeKpValue(JulianDate).)
Public methodComputeSolarRadioFlux
Computes the solar radiation flux value (often called F10.7) at the given date.
(Overrides SolarGeophysicalDataComputeSolarRadioFlux(JulianDate).)
Public methodComputeThreeHourApValues
Calculates the array of the eight ap geomagnetic flux values for the given day. The flux values are recorded every three hours.
(Overrides SolarGeophysicalDataComputeThreeHourApValues(JulianDate).)
Public methodComputeThreeHourKpValues
Calculates the array of the eight ap geomagnetic flux values for the given day. The flux values are recorded every three hours.
(Overrides SolarGeophysicalDataComputeThreeHourKpValues(JulianDate).)
Public methodEquals
Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalize
Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCode
Serves as the default hash function.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetType
Gets the Type of the current instance.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone
Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodStatic memberReadFromFile(String)
Processes the CSSI Space Weather file into a set of time varying geophysical data. For more information on the format of this file, or to obtain updated files, see: CSSI Space Weather Data. This will use the following defaults: The DefaultObservationTimeOfDay determines when to transition from one entry to the next. The UseApToComputeKpValues flag is set to true by default, indicating that Kp will produce the more precise value computed from Ap rather than interpolating the rounded values of Kp represented in the data file. The UseDailyFluxData flag is set to false by default.
Public methodStatic memberReadFromFile(String, Double, Boolean, Boolean)
Processes the CSSI Space Weather file into a set of time varying geophysical data. For more information on the format of this file, or to obtain updated files, see: CSSI Space Weather Data.
Public methodStatic memberReadFromStream(TextReader)
Processes the CSSI Space Weather file into a set of time varying geophysical data. For more information on the format of this file, or to obtain updated files, see: CSSI Space Weather Data.
Public methodStatic memberReadFromStream(TextReader, Double, Boolean, Boolean)
Processes the CSSI Space Weather file into a set of time varying geophysical data. For more information on the format of this file, or to obtain updated files, see: CSSI Space Weather Data.
Public methodToString
Returns a string that represents the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)

Fields
  NameDescription
Public fieldStatic memberDefaultObservationTimeOfDay
Gets the default for the time of day at which the entries in the data file are assumed to take effect. Prior to this number of seconds into the day, the previous day's value will be used, only rolling over after this time of the day. This value is 72000.0 or 20 hours.
