CCMC Goals

  • Employ scientific research models to address National Space Weather needs

  • Generate, with the research community, a flexible model chain, which addresses solar atmosphere to Earth’s upper atmosphere

  • Serve the research community through access to scientific model results (“open model policy”)

  • Perform broad-based testing and metrics-based evaluation of research models

  • Make available science- and metrics-tested models to operational National Space Weather Agencies

Service

  • Through www-accessible run results

  • Through runs on request (>600 now),

  • - 5 ionospheric models

  • - 4 magnetospheric models

    • - 4 heliospheric models

    • - 3 solar models

  • Runs can be tailored to user needs

  • No cost to user

Magnetospheric Models

  • OpenGGCM (UNH), BATSRUS (UMich) – 3D global MHD models of magnetosphere ( 2RE – 200RE) .

  • Fok kinetic Ring Current and Radiation Belt Models ( 2RE – 6RE) .

ne

  • Electrodynamic (MHD ionospheric modules)

  • Empirical (Weimer statistical)

  • SAMI 2 meridional ionosheric (Huba, NRL)

  • CTIP global ionospheric (Fuller-Rowell et al, NOAA)

Key Usage Statistics

  • Total executed model runs:

    Over 600 runs executed so far

  • Monthly website stats ‘05:

    • 17,900 website hits/month

    • 600 unique visitors/month

    • 1350 visualization requests/month

  • International resource

  • Responding to user feedback:

    • interface streamlining underway

Models: Future

  • Sun, Heliosphere, Magnetosphere and Ionosphere:

    • SWMF (UMichigan) includes 9 component models covering solar corona to upper atmosphere.

    • CISM 1.0: First version of CISM Sun-Earth model.

  • Sun:

    • Updated MAS step toward eruption modeling

    • New models: UCB ANMHD model, DeVore ARMS, DeForest Fluxon

  • Ionosphere:

    • GAIM (USU) installed (compiled code only)

      • CCMC will support GAIM V&V

    • Eccles HF absorption model

      • Installation completed

      • NASA/LWS supported

  • Input from Science & Operations?


Summary

  • CCMC is the child of George Siscoe’s GEM ideas

    • Models available to research community

  • CCMC very interested to expand:

    • Positive relations with model developers

    • Positive relations with modeling activities (CISM, MURIs, CSEM…)

    • Close working relation with NOAA/SEC, AF/SMC, AFWA

    • Service to research community

    • Support of flight missions: STEREO, THEMIS

  • CCMC wants to remain flexible to offer best service:

    - Your input/requests/needs are essential!
