SWMF Real Time Results and Data-Model Comparisons

These real-time SWMF runs are conducted at the Community Coordinated Modeling Center (CCMC) at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC), and displayed here with permission from CCMC staff.

Data from SWMF2007 are available from January 2014 through September 2017. Data from SWMF2011 are available from April 2015 to the present.

Other SWMF2011 recent figures



CCMC has run multiple versions of the SWMF for real-time geospace output. The original configuration, designated here as SWMF2007, only includes the BATS-R-US MHD model and an ionospheric electrodynamics solver. The newer configuration, designated here as SWMF2011, adds to the model suite the RCM inner magnetospheric drift physics code. It also uses a more resolved grid in BATS-R-US.
