sscws Conjunction Example Jupyter Notebook

This notebook demonstrates using the sscws to find satellite conjunctions. Additionally, it demonstrates using cdasws to get data from cdaweb for the satellite/ground stations involved in the conjunction.


For just satellite conjunctions

  1. pip install sscws

To also get data from cdaweb

  1. Install CDF
  2. pip install spacepy
  3. pip install cdasws


Define Conjunction Query

Define a query to find magnetic field line conjuctions of at least two THEMIS satellites with one of four THEMIS ground stations during 2008 doy = 1 - 5.

Run Conjunction Query

Submit the conjunction query to SSC for evaluation.

Display the results

Setup For Access To CDAWeb Data

The following is code to find the corresponding data from cdaweb. Note that you need to have installed CDF, spacepy, and cdasws as mentioned in prerequisites for the following.

Get Data During Conjunction
