WACCM-X is now on ROR

As of 12/21/2022, the Whole Atmosphere Community Climate Model with thermosphere and ionosphere extension (WACCM-X) is available to the research community through the CCMC Runs-On-Request service. The WACCM-X is a comprehensive general circulation model, spanning the range of altitude from the Earth’s surface to the upper thermosphere. The scientific goals of the model include studying solar impacts on the Earth atmosphere, couplings between atmosphere layers through chemical, physical and dynamical processes, and the implications of the coupling for the climate and for the near space environment.

Note: the maximum requested model days through the CCMC Runs-On-Request service is 5 days per request.
