The CCMC is a multi-agency partnership to enable, support and perform the research and development for next-generation space science and space weather models.
- We provide, to the scientific community, access to modern space research models
- We test and evaluate models
- We support Space Weather forecasters
- We support space science education

Runs on Request/Online Visualization changelog
View the log of changes/updates to the 3DView online visualization, as well as announcements regarding occasional correction/re-execution of past ROR requests. The most recent changes were:
Feb. 6, 2019The time series visualization (via run_timeseries.cgi) now accepts user-uploaded satellite trajectory files in addition to the trajectories available via SSCWeb. Text files with 10 data columns headed by "Year Month Day Hour Minute Second ms" followed by the names of the three spatial coordinates (such as " X Y Z" or " lon lat height") are being accepted. Trajectory data are assumed to be in the model coordinate system.
The SSCWEB satellite inventory used for time series extractions and run on request submissions has not been updated since Aug. 19, 2018. The update was performed by hand at 4:25 PM Eastersn (9:25 PM UT) on Feb. 6, 2019.
Nov. 29, 2018The global magnetosphere run request system may have incorrectly selected CRCM instead of RCM as the inner magnetosphere model in SWMF run requests. The submission system has been patched to select the correct ring current model.
Nov. 26, 2018DSCOVR L2 data (H0/mag, H1/fc (Faraday Cup)) are now available as input for magnetosphere request runs., either through the input file generation page or the magnetosphere run request system (run requests of inner magnetosphere models and empirial models of the ionosphere also offer DSCOVR L2 inputs as of Nov. 29).
Nov. 8, 2018Solar wind data from the WIND spacecraft that can be used for various run-on-request run submissions have been updated through October 27, 2018.
Data from earlier years have been updated to the latest version available at CDAWEB.
Nov. 6, 2018The start page of the magnetosphere model run submission was modified to explain that the inner magnetosphere model selections (RCM and RBE or CRCM) apply to any of the SWMF/BATSRUS model versions listed before.
Oct. 31, 2018
It was discovered that the LFM magnetosphere model assumes that solar wind data are propagated to the X=0 position (plane containing Earth) rather than the X -position of the model's upstream (sunward facing) boundary (typically located at about 30 RE). This has resulted in solar wind features to appear in the simulations a few minutes early (about 8 mintues for solar wind velocity of 400 km/s, less for faster solar wind).
Oct. 15, 2018
The Weimer real time page attempted to load solar wind parameters from a defunct file location. The page has been corrected and it now displays the currect solar wind speed and lead time used for propagation from L1 to Earth.
Starting Oct. 31, 2018, solar wind data in "event" runs from the selected spacecraft or data source (ACE, WIND, DSCOVR, OMNI) are propagated to X=0.
A note about this issue has been added to LFM run result pages.
The List Data feature in the model visualization via run_idl3d.cgi and run_iono2d.cgi was updated to properly load or calculate all the quantities that are to be written to text files as requested via the Include parameters from this list in addition to those selected for the plot text field.
Only custom formulas (availabe for selected model output types via run_idl3d.cgi) need to be plotted to be included in text file outputs.
