ACE Level 2 Data Formatted for Runs on Request

Solar wind plasma data (SWEPAM) and magnetic field data (MAG) are downloaded from ACE science center. Data can be propagated from ACE to selected position of the simulation inflow boundary (for BATSRUS and GUMICS models offered at the CCMC it is 33 Re; for OpenGGCM - 33 Re; for CMIT/LFM - 30 Re) with two-hours-averaged Vx velocity. Please do not request time intervals longer than 360 hours. Plasma data (64 sec for Level 2 data) are interpolated on magnetic field temporal grid (16 sec).

ACE plasma and magnetic field Level 2 data are not continuously available.

Check Level 2 data availability at ACE science center.

Select the time interval between 1998/02/11 00:00:00 and 2021/03/12 23:59:59. The interval should not exceed 360 hours.


Project data from ACE position to RE.
Do not project data.
Please note: for use with BATSRUS and GUMICS ACE data have to be projected to 33 Re;
for use with OpenGGCM model - to 33 Re; for CMIT/LFM - to 30 Re.

Additional time shift seconds.

This will generate data in GSM coordinates.
Data will be converted to GSE or SM during run submission as needed (SWMF/BATSRUS uses GSM, OpenGGCM and GUMICS use GSE, CMIT/LFM uses SM).
