Assimilative Mapping of Ionospheric Electrodynamics (AMIE):

The AMIE procedure is an optimally constrained, weighted leastsquares 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.


Asteroseismic Modeling Portal (AMP):

The Asteroseismic Modeling Portal (AMP) provides a webbased interface for astronomers to use the Aarhus Stellar Evolution Code (ASTEC) coupled with a parallel genetic algorithm (MPIKAIA) to derive the properties of Sunlike 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 (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.


Center for Integrated Space Weather Modeling (CISM):

CISM is a National Science Foundation (NSF)/Science and Technology Center (STC) program to develop a complete SunEarth 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 (GSWM):

The GlobalScale Wave Model (GSWM) solves the linearized and extended NavierStokes equations for steadystate 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 thermallydriven response for either a diurnal or semidiurnal atmospheric tide.


HAO Spectral Diagnostic Package For Emitted Radiation (HAOSDIPER):

HAOSDIPER is an IDLbased database and software system for working with data from atoms and atomic ions. HAOSDIPER 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).


PIKAIA

PIKAIA (pronounced "peekahyah") is a general purpose
function optimization FORTRAN77 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 Models (TGCMs):

The NCAR TGCM's are threedimensional, timedependent models of the EARTH's neutral upper atmosphere. The model uses a finite differencing technique to obtain a selfconsistent solution for the coupled, nonlinear equations of hydrodynamics, thermodynamics, continuity of the neutral gas and for the coupling between the dynamics and the composition.


Whole Atmosphere Community Climate Model (WACCM):

The WholeAtmosphere 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 interdivisional 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.
