2D Ionosphere output
Model: SWMF-RCM2
Run: Yi-Hsin_Liu_082116_13a

This is the web interface for the visualization of: ionosphere view of simulation of the coupled magnetosphere-ionosphere system

Go back to web page of run
Please review the default selections below and make your changes.

To start the graphics program click the Update Plot button. The resulting image will be displayed at this location of the page.

Should the result be a black image, then the graphics program encountered a programming error. Please report the set of input parameters used.

  Update Plot will update (generate) the plot with the chosen time and plot parameters below.
This will take some time (typically 5-10s) as data are read in and processed.

  Choose data time:
- or -
 Change time by moving
- or -
 Create GIF movie (and archive of ASCII data outputs) with current plot settings
Note: This is a queue submission system requiring the following three additional inputs:

Choose Plot Mode:

 Plot Options:
View angles (latitude, longitude from local midnight for EarthView only):
   AX [-90..90]:    AZ [   0..360]:
 Plot in geographic coordinates with continents
      (only for ColorContour plots;

 Show Grid (in contour plots):
     Latitude-MLT/LT grid (10° in Latitude, 45° in MLT/LT)
     simulation grid (not available in geographic coordinates)
Image magnification (all images)
Line thickness  (flow lines, arrows)
Character thickness  (all annotations)
New: Add satellite position to plot:

Choose quantity to be displayed (some Plot Modes require multiple choices)
Q 1: 
Q 2: 
Q 3: 

Plot Options
for selected
Plot Modes:

   Show values with contour levels
  Number of Levels    Lock range:
         Min.:   Max.:
    Log scale (use all data>0 in non-negative fields)

Choose plot area:

  Reset Form will reset changes to the defaults specified by the previous run of this script.
  Update Plot will update (generate) the plot with the chosen time and plot parameters above.

List Data (check to get any of the following outputs which apply to movie requests as well):
What: Plot variables from above
Include all primary model output parameters (Warning: text files may become large).
You have to select vector magnitudes (e.g., "B","V","J") explicitly for plotting to get them:
    computed scalars such as
    derived vectors (e.g, "JxB"): select one component or its magnitude to get all components

Include parameters from this list in addition to those selected for the plot: (copy names from Q1 list above and separate them with commas).
Where: At positions specified:   enter positions in Lat. and MLT as comma-separated lists. Use combination of positions in a 2D grid.
Lat. positions:
MLT positions:
List Data From Plot:
  • 2D plots (Contour, Vector, ...): whole grid (selection will be reduced if over 44000 positions).
  • LinePlot: data along line plotted,
