Real-time electric potential with Weimer 2005 model

These plots are using NOAA-SWPC real-time solar wind data. The solar wind data are propagated to Earth with a 242-minute velocity average <Vx>=462.25 km/s from DSCOVR's L1-position at around XGSM=250 RE (DSCOVR's real-time X-position. ). The lead time is thus 50 min.

This page was loaded at 2022/01/28 11:14:22 UTC and will reload in 2 minutes. Images are updated every 5 minutes.

Image features: Magnetic local time (MLT) (1-hour intervals) and magnetic latitudes (10-degree intervals) in Altitude Adjusted Corrected Geomagnetic Coordinates (AACGM) are shown as a web of solid lines.
Geographic coordinates are shown as solid and dotted lines on a map of the continents. Local noon is at the top of the images.
The top image is the forecast (around 50 min in the future), the bottom image the nowcast (about 60  min earlier).
Solar wind data were averaged over a 15 minute interval before the two times.
