Science-based prediction of the effects of the solar wind on the Earth's magnetosphere requires both visualization of observations and numerical simulation of magnetospheric dynamics based on a physical model.
Long Term Goal
- Maintain and expand data processing and model visualization tools (MIM software)
- Develop an operational simulation tool, based on a kinetic approach (go beyond the existing huge but not-so-physical MHD simulations used elsewhere).
Short Term Goal
- Maintain MIM software and distribution
- Simulation proof of principle. Build and demonstrate a (non-operational) simulation for the acceleration region above aurora.
