The 3-D reconstruction technique incorporates a kinematic solar wind model and tomographically fit this to ground-based interplanetary scintillation (IPS) data provided by Solar Terrestrial Environment Laboratory (STELab). The IPS time-dependent 3-D reconstruction analysis has been available at the CCMC since 2001, but has been updated recently to provide time-dependent volumes of density and velocity at slightly higher resolution than before. The IPS analysis allows the 3-D reconstruction of CMEs and other heliospheric structures such as corotating interaction regions (CIRs).
Remote sensing data of the solar wind (currently IPS observations from the STELab in Nagoya, Japan).
Solar wind density and velocity throughout the inner heliosphere.
