heliospheric model inventory
Heliospheric Model Inventory
  • CCMC (Community Coordinated Modeling Center)
    • Serve model runs to both science and operational forecasting communities
    • ISWA – http://iswa.ccmc.gsfc.nasa.gov
  • WSA
  • WSA/ENLIL
  • CORHEL (MAS/MAS, MAS/ENLIL, WSA/MAS, WSA/ENLIL)
  • SWMF
  • HelTomo
status ambient timelines at 1au
Status – Ambient Timelines at 1AU
  • Model error is inherited from coronal models
  • Arrival times of slow/fast wind transitions and current sheet crossings have typical timing errors or order 24 hours.
  • Fieldlineconnectivities to solar surface challenged by lack of low latitude open flux in static models
  • Some models have had more effective tuning for different magnetogram sources
  • All Helio MHD models ‘fudge’ the current sheet and so Bz cannot be trusted
  • None of the Helio models give T that can be used for anything right now
status time dependent
Status – Time Dependent
  • ENLIL Cone Model (with WSA or in CORHEL) and HelTomo
  • Sandro has published ICME ‘arrival time’ and ‘impact on magnetosphere’ analyses
  • Arrival time errors average 6 – 8 hours with big spread (0 - 20 hours)
  • Impact on magnetosphere too severe by a factor or ~2
improvements
Improvements ?
  • Ensemble forecasting
    • Based on variety of magnetogram sources
    • Based on different cone model parameters
    • Appropriate for WSA/ENLIL, CORHEL and SWMF
    • Use of Heliographic Imager data or HelTomo output to initialize heliosphere or even to support assimilation strategy
    • Blobs as markers of CIRs – launch artificial blobs with observed statistical pattern and compare synthetic HI images with observation to select best model from ensemble
  • SWMF still needs an ICME feature
  • Adding shock driver SEP model to ENLIL
