p-winds is an open-source Python implementation of Parker wind models for
planetary atmospheres, more specifically their upper atmosphere or corona. A paper
p-winds was published in Dos Santos et al. (2022). The
code is largely based on the theoretical framework of Oklopčić & Hirata
(2018) and Lampón et al. (2020), which themselves based their work on the
stellar wind model of Parker (1958).
In the current version, the code solves the stead-state ionization distribution of hydrogen and helium around the planet based on its physical parameters and the high-energy irradiation arriving at the planet. It also calculates the wavelength-dependent transit depths in the metastable helium triplet at 1.083 microns, and some metal lines in the UV (such as O I and C II). More species will be implemented in the future.
