Assimilative Mapping of Ionospheric Electrodynamics Assimilative Mapping of Ionospheric Electrodynamics (AMIE):
The AMIE procedure is an optimally constrained, weighted least-squares fit of electric potential distribution to diverse types of atmospheric observations. Knowledge of these distributions is important in many areas of magnetospheric, ionospheric, and thermospheric physics.
AMP Logo Asteroseismic Modeling Portal (AMP):
The Asteroseismic Modeling Portal (AMP) provides a web-based interface for astronomers to use the Aarhus Stellar Evolution Code (ASTEC) coupled with a parallel genetic algorithm (MPIKAIA) to derive the properties of Sun-like stars from observations of their pulsation frequencies. For example, check out the data from our favorite star, the sun.
Coupling, Energetics and Dynamics of Atmospheric Regions Coupling, Energetics and Dynamics of Atmospheric Regions (CEDAR):
CEDAR is the dominant national and international research program in terrestrial aeronomy. Scientifically, CEDAR is devoted to the characterization and understanding of the atmosphere above ~60 km, with emphasis on the energetic and dynamic processes that determine the basic composition and structure of the atmosphere. Particular attention is given to how these processes are coupled and to the mechanisms that couple different atmospheric regions.
CISM Logo Center for Integrated Space Weather Modeling (CISM):
CISM is a National Science Foundation (NSF)/Science and Technology Center (STC) program to develop a complete Sun-Earth model. The focus is on modeling the magnetosphere (using the LFM), the Thermosphere and Ionosphere (using TIEGCM), and a coupled version of these codes, called CMIT.
Global Scale Wave Model Global Scale Wave Model (GSWM):
The Global-Scale Wave Model (GSWM) solves the linearized and extended Navier-Stokes equations for steady-state global temperature and wind perturbations. GSWM may be used to calculate an "unforced" planetary wave response for a specified period and zonal wavenumber, or the thermally-driven response for either a diurnal or semidiurnal atmospheric tide.
power radiated as a function of time by emission lines of carbon, from singly ionized to hydrogen-like carbon HAO Spectral Diagnostic Package For Emitted Radiation (HAOS-DIPER):
HAOS-DIPER is an IDL-based database and software system for working with data from atoms and atomic ions. HAOS-DIPER grew out of a need to work with and manipulate data for neutral atoms and atomic ions to understand radiation emitted by some space plasmas, notably the solar atmosphere and stellar atmospheres. An early version was described by Judge and Meisner (1994).
the evolution of the population's distribution in parameter space. Each individual is shown as a solid green dot, and the best of each generation as a larger, yellow dot PIKAIA
PIKAIA (pronounced "pee-kah-yah") is a general purpose function optimization FORTRAN-77 subroutine based on a genetic algorithm. PIKAIA is a public domain software available electronically from the anonymous ftp archive of the High Altitude Observatory. The subroutine is particularly useful (and robust) in treating multimodal optimization problems.
Thermosphere Ionosphere Electrodynamic General Circulation Model Thermosphere Ionosphere Electrodynamic General Circulation Models (TGCMs):
The NCAR TGCM's are three-dimensional, time-dependent models of the EARTH's neutral upper atmosphere. The model uses a finite differencing technique to obtain a self-consistent solution for the coupled, nonlinear equations of hydrodynamics, thermodynamics, continuity of the neutral gas and for the coupling between the dynamics and the composition.
hole Atmosphere Community Climate Model Whole Atmosphere Community Climate Model (WACCM):
The Whole-Atmosphere Community Climate Model (WACCM) is a comprehensive numerical model, spanning the range of altitude from the Earth's surface to the thermosphere. The development of WACCM is an inter-divisional collaboration that unifies certain aspects of the upper atmospheric modeling of HAO, the middle atmosphere modeling of ACD, and the tropospheric modeling of CGD, using the NCAR Community Climate System Model (CCSM) as a common numerical framework.
