AMPS: Trajectories (position, velocity) of individual particles inserted into completed global magnetosphere simulation.


Particles are traced in outputs provided by previously-run simulations at a limited time resolution. Electric fields as used by the model may not be fully available and be approximated by (-VxB).


Three-dimensional magnetosphere magnetic and electric fields from existing simulation, initial locations and velocities of particles, specified as list of individual particles or as region with particle distribution parameters (center and extent of box or radius of sphere, number of particles, bulk velocity and temperature of velocity distribution).


Positions and velocities of list of particles over time.

Model is time-dependant.
