Maintenance Notice

On Friday, 03/01/2024, the main CCMC website and all CCMC applications will be intermittently unavailable between 7 AM to 11 AM Eastern Time.  The main CCMC website and all CCMC services/applications (e.g., iSWA, Runs-On-Request (ROR), Instant-Run, online visualization services, all Scoreboards, DONKI, CAMEL, StereoCAT, etc.) will be impacted.

Please refrain from submitting run requests via ROR during the maintenance window.

Last Updated: 03/01/2024


Version: 2.0

Statistical model returning Poynting Flux (in W/m^2) energy flux into the ionosphere. The model was compiled using FAST satellite observations that are binned and mapped on magnetic coordinates.

Pattern of Poynting Flux distribution in auroral zone (> 50 degrees magnetic latitude), separate patterns for northern and southern hemisphere.

Change Log

The updated model accounts for asymmetries between the northern and southern hemisphere and thus outputs different patterns for each hemisphere.


  • High Latitude Ionosphere / Auroral Region


  • Energy Flow into Ionosphere
