Real-Time Modeling and Forecasting using AMIE and TIME-GCM

ASTRA has developed a real-time modeling and forecasting system using AMIE and TIME-GCM . The system calculates atmospheric properties from the mesosphere to the ionosphere in real-time and forecasts 30-60 minutes in the future.

AMIE is driven by ACE SwVEL and MAG parameters provided by NOAA/SWPC. AMIE is then used to drive the TIME-GCM.

Thanks to NOAA/ACE for providing IMF/SwVel data at http://sec.noaa.gov/ftpdir/lists/ace/

The TIMEGCM/AMIE were originally developed at NCAR and we are grateful for the opportunity to use them.
