NRLMSISE-00 Atmosphere Model
*** NOTE: This model is now available on the new CCMC Instant-Run System. This legacy page will be retired by 9/30/2022. Please migrate and use the new interface instead. ***

This page enables the computation and plotting of any subset of MSIS parameters: neutral temperature, exospheric temperature, densities of He, O, N2, O2, Ar, H, N, and total mass density.

Plot model data 
      Note 1: The first selected parameter below always will be along the X-axis, the other selections will be along Y-axis.
              (e.g. if you want a Height profile, you may specify Height as the first parameter in the listing below.)     
      Note 2: User may get scatter plot if he specifies any two parameters below and changes the "connect type"  
              in the "Advanced plot selections" to "show points only"
