nasapower 4.0.0 Major changes

  • Adds support for new NASA POWER API v2.0, which includes new hourly data and other major changes to the API and available data. See https://power.larc.nasa.gov/ for fully detailed changes to the data.

  • Drops support for the deprecated NASA POWER API V1.0. Previous versions of nasapower are no longer functional.

  • Adds new function, query_parameters() to fetch information from the API on individual and all available community/temporal API combination parameters.

  • Removes SSE community, replaced with RE.

  • Removes global option for geographic coverage as passed along through the latlon argument of get_power().

  • Directly parse data from API response rather than downloading data to disk and importing.

  • The get_power() arguments are changed:

    • two new arguments are added,
      • wind_elevation, and
      • wind_surface,
    • the temporal_average argument has been superseded by temporal_api to align with the terminology used in the POWER API. The temporal_average argument will still work, however, a message will be given if a user still uses temporal_average to alert the user of the change and ask them to update their scripts.
