Heliophysics Laboratory Primer

This primer has been created to help you to use the CCMC tools designed to interrogate Heliophysics models at CCMC, and to obtain a top level view of the connectivity and naming of regions and parameters that comprize the heliophysics system.

The highest level picture of the Heliophysics system shows three components - the Sun, the solar wind, and the magnetosphere while buried inside the magnetosphere is the ionosphere and thermosphere. Click for the specific primer:

Please contact CCMC staff if you are experiencing difficulties with the CCMC tools and/or to ask questions about CCMC tools and services:

You can launch/download the most current version of Space Weather Explorer 2 (SWX2). This program requires Oracle's version of Java. Download the appropriate JRE version for your platform. Mac OSX users can use the operating system's bundled version of Java.
