2D Ionosphere output
Run: Naoko_Takahashi_080217_2

This is the web interface for the visualization of: Ionosphere of simulation of solar wind flow around the Earth.

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
      output steps
- 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:
  • Start Time:
  • End Time: 
  • Email address for notification:
    Note: Request should be filled within a few minutes to one hour. Only one request can be in the system at a time (whether waiting or executing) for each client IP or email address. Movies and images remain on the ftp server for a week and needs to be downloaded within that time.

 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; EarthView automatically implies this option)
 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)
 Plot Polar Cap Boundary (only runs where polar cap had been requested)
New: Variables other than the polar cap outline derived during field line tracing have been added to Q 1, Q 2 and Q 3:
  (x_0,y_0): field line position in magnetosphere for ZGSM=0),
  (x_end,y_end,z_end): end position of field line in GSM coordinates
    closed: over other hemisphere at magnetosphere model boundary (subject to mapping into ionosphere);
    open (within polar cap): boundary of magnetosphere simulation box.
New: Add satellite position to plot:
Use latitude and longitude position of satellites at ionosphere altitude.
Trace satellite position along magnetic dipole to ionosphere altitude of 110 km.

Note: Satellite positions are projected onto the selected cut plane if within the selected plot area.
Satellite positions may be far away from the selected cut plane.

Choose Plot Mode: Choose quantity to be displayed (some Plot Modes require multiple choices)

Choose plot area (not for EarthView; only equatorward edge):
        minimum latitude (Theta) , Range: 0 ... 75 (0 = equator, 90 = pole)
Line Plots:
        Choose cut meridian:   ,  Range: 0 ... 24 (0 = midnight, 6 = dawn, 12 = noon, 18 = dusk, 24 = midnight)
        Choose cut latitude:   ,  Range: -90 ... 90 (-90 = south pole, 0 = equator, 90 = north pole)
  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,
