CORSIKA simulations

CORSIKA is an Air Shower Simulation Program. To be used for detailed simulation of extensive air showers initiated by high-energy cosmic-ray particles.

This module makes it easy to work with CORSIKA output, it was original written by Javier Gonzalez and adapted for HiSPARC by Arne de Laat.

This documentation sometimes refers to the CORSIKA users manual, this users manual can be found here CORSIKA User’s Guide

In addition to reading CORSIKA output, functionally is provided to easily submit many CORSIKA jobs to the Nikhef batch facility (Stoomboot).

CORSIKA Module

Process CORSIKA simulation data.

This package contains modules for working with CORSIKA simulations:

blocks
classes for the block and subblocks in CORSIKA data
corsika_queries
select CORSIKA showers from a corsika overview
generate_corsika_overview
generate an overview table of available CORSIKA simulations
particles
convert CORSIKA particle codes to common names
qsub_corsika
submit CORSIKA simulations to the Nikhef Stoomboot facility
qsub_store_corsika_data
submit store CORSIKA jobs to the Nikhef Stoomboot facility
reader
read CORSIKA data files into Python
store_corsika_data
convert CORSIKA data files to HDF5 files
units
convert values in units used by CORSIKA to HiSPARC units
