Work Description

Title: Model results for "Modeling study of geospace system response to the solar wind dynamic pressure enhancement on March 17, 2015" Open Access Deposited
Attribute Value
  • The simulation data were generated through the use of the following models: the Block Adaptive Tree Solarwind Roe Upwind Scheme (BATS-R-US), Comprehensive Ring Current Model (CRCM), Ridley Ionosphere Model (RIM) and the Global Ionosphere Thermosphere Model (GITM). The simulations were performed on the Yellowstone and Cheyenne Supercomputer Clusters provided by National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Computational and Information Systems Laboratory, sponsored by the National Science Foundation.
  • The global magnetosphere-ionosphere-thermosphere (M-I-T) system is intrinsically coupled and susceptible to external drivers such as solar wind dynamic pressure enhancements. In order to understand the large-scale dynamic processes in the M-I-T system due to the compression from the solar wind, the 17 March 2015 sudden commencement was studied in detail using global numerical models. This data set is comprised of the simulation data generated from these models.

  • NOTE: The following changes were made to this dataset on March 28, 2018. First, two mp4 files were added. Second, the symbol representing "degree" was not rendering properly in the README file. The symbols were removed and replaced with the word "degree". Third, the metadata in the "methodology" and "description" fields were revised for content and clarity. On April 16, 2018 a citation to the corresponding article was added to the metadata record.
