Work Description

Title: Maximum Spreading Speed for Magnetopause Reconnection: Model Dataset Open Access Deposited
Attribute Value
  • The dataset was created using the Space Weather Modeling Framework, which couples and executes two models: the BATS-R-US ideal magnetohydrodynamics model and the Ridley Ionosphere Model.
  • The goal of this simulation was to examine the spread of magnetic reconnection across the dayside magnetopause upon the arrival of a tangential discontinuity of the interplanetary magnetic field from a purely northward to southward configuration. Simple solar wind conditions were used to give us input into the system. A very high resolution grid setup was used in BATS-R-US.
