3D Simulation Results: Model: BATSRUS
Run: Patricia_Reiff_100418_1a

This is the web interface to create time series visualizations of results of a three-dimensional simulation of the Earth's environment.

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 10-30s) as data are read in and processed.

Time sampling rate:
Plot Options:
 Exclude region around the Earth up to RE
Use satellite track 
    upload trajectory file:
    Text file with 10 space-separated columns of numbers headed by 'Year Month Day Hour Minute Second ms X Y Z' (≤100000 lines of ≤150 characters each).
    Use satellite name at SSCWeb (April 9, 2020: this feature may fail with the response time from SSCWeb being unusually long. We have contacted them to resolve the issue.):
    Note: Satellites may not always be in the modeled region and model data may be unavailable.
Image magnification 
   (all images; use >=1.25 for 3D Flowlines)
Choose Plot Mode: Choose quantity to be displayed (some Plot Modes require up to three choices):
Q 1:  Q 2:   Q 3: 
Note: divergences, gradients and curls are not yet available with SWX plot modes.

Plot Options for selected Plot Modes:  
Trajectory Plots:
  View angles:
    AX [-90..90]:    AZ [-180 ... 180]:
Color Contour, Trajectory Scalar:
   Color table
   Lock color range:
       Min.:   Max.:
   Log scale (use all data>0 in non-negative fields)
Contour:   show values with contour levels
Vector:  length of arrows:

Choose Plot Area:
  Line Plot and Trajectory Plot: Select start point of line on the left, the end point on the right.   
(Color)Contour Plot: Select start point of spatial line on the left, the end point on the right.
A time interval of non-zero length has to be selected, too.
X1 X2 Range: -224 ... 32 RE
Y1 Y2 Range: -128 ... 128 RE
Z1 Z2 Range: -128 ... 128 RE
  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):
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: List Data From Plot:
  • 2D plots (Contour, Vector, ...):
         equidistant 61x61-element grid in cut plane (Interpolate data onto equidistant grid selected)
         max. 44000 grid positions (Interpolate data onto equidistant grid unchecked)
  • LinePlot: data along line plotted,
