Atmosphere API - calculate composition and density of the atmosphere 0.9.4

Added: 01/08/2019
Updated at: 09/09/2019

Instantly access empirical models of atmospheric density and composition that are recommended by the Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) for satellite drag calculations.

NRLMSISE-00 is recommended for composition calculations and was developed by the US Naval Research Laboratory.

JB2008 is a newer model and is recommended for density calculations at altitudes above 80 km. It was developed by Space Environment Technologies and the US Air Force Space Command.

The Atmosphere API wraps the original source code for both. It is free for research and development purposes and rate-limited to 1000 calls per day.
