Model Description
SWMF contains 9 modules that cover the various regions between the Sun and Earth:

BATS-R-US request runs for the magnetosphere are now executed using SWMF/GM (coupled with SWMF/IE).
A SWMF run of the magnetosphere at CCMC can include the Rice Convection Model (RCM) in the inner magnetosphere (SWMF/IM) in addition to the BATS-R-US MHD module of the global magnetosphere (GM) and the ionospheric electrodynamics (IE) potential solver.

If a SWMF/(BATSRUS + RCM) run is requested, the RCM modifies the plasma pressure distribution in the inner magnetosphere and changes the resulting field-aligned currents in the ionosphere (yields more realistic Region-1 currents). The RCM inside SWMF does not generate any outputs.
