SWMF/RB=RBE

Version: 20180525

The SWMF is a software framework that allows integration of various models into a coherent system. The SWMF allows running and coupling any meaningful subset of the models together. The main applications of the SWMF are related to space physics and space weather, but it can be, and has been, used for other applications that the models allow.

Radiation Belt (IM) = RBE The Radiation Belt Environment model is developed by Meiching Fok and Alex Glocer at NASA Goddard. It is a spatially 2-dimensional code with extra two dimensions for pitch angle and energy

Caveats:

This is the version used in the SWMF 2018 as the Radiation Belt (RB) component, aka Radiation Belt Environment (RBE)

Inputs

General SWMF inputs include setting the number of processors and their allocation to the included models. The date and time to simulate and the length of the run are also necessary.

In addition, an input file with a large number of code options is read in.

Outputs

Outputs from RB include plot files.

Model is time-dependant.

Domains

  • Geospace
  • Magnetosphere / Inner Magnetosphere / RadiationBelt

Space Weather Impacts

  • Near-earth radiation and plasma environment (aerospace assets functionality)

Code

Code Languages: Fortran 90
