The Space Weather Modeling Framework (SWMF) is the premier space weather modeling toolkit here at CSEM. The SWMF contains several physics models, including the global MHD model BATSRUS, the ionosphere-thermosphere model GITM, the ionosphere electrodynamics model RIM, the ring current models RCM, CRCM and HEIDI, the polar wind model PWOM and the radiation belt model RBE.
The Center for Radiative Shock Hydrodynamics (CRASH) is advancing predictive science in the nationally important area of radiation hydrodynamics (RH) via a unified, multi-prong approach. CRASH researchers are working to substantially improve the ability to do predictive simulations of high-energy, high-density and astrophysical flows.
FDIPS is a Finite Difference Iterative Potential-field Solver that can generate the 3D potential magnetic field solution based on a magnetogram. FDIPS is written in Fortran 90 and it uses the MPI library for parallel execution.
GITM is a model of the Earth's Ionosphere and Magnetosphere that is coupled into the Space Weather Modeling Framework (SWMF). GITM is currently available through the Space Weather Modeling Framework (SWMF).
The ICES toolkit consists of a Nucleus and a Coma tool that will allow the user to test their own trajectories against the computed models. Access is open to the public, but we ask that you register so that we know who is using our data and can support it as needed.
mSWiM was developed in order to provide solar wind conditions at a range of solar system objects beyond Earth’s orbit. The model calculates solar wind conditions using measurements from near Earth orbit spacecraft as input and propagates these conditions radially outward to various solar system objects using a 1-D MHD model. Access is open to the public, but we ask that you register so that we know who is using our data and can support it as needed.
The MAPSview site is a data distribution center for the Magnetosphere and Plasma Science (MAPS) instruments on the Cassini probe orbiting Saturn. Access is restricted to those on the Cassini project teams.
CSEM's Virtual Model Repository (VMR) is a clearinghouse for computational model results available to the general community. It seeks to make the results consistent so that they may be compared and contrasted with results from other Virtual Observatories and the CCMC.
