The variation of atmospheric temperature with altitude over India was reported in M. N. Sasi (1994), "A reference atmosphere for the Indian equatorial zone", Indian Journal of Radio and Space Physics, vol. 23, pp. 299 - 312.

This package contains a csv file of that empirical data, and a program to calculate the pressure and density at those altitudes from it.

These variables (temperature, pressure, and density) are saved to a MAT-file (included in the package) to create a lookup table for the Indian Reference Atmosphere.

The package also provides a function to find (by interpolation) the temperature, pressure, and density at any height(s) (accepts multi-dimensional array input) between 0 and 80 km AMSL.

Finally, several charts like the geopotential vs geometric altitudes, best fit lines vs. recorded data, etc. are also included in this package.
