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:
- Masha Kuznetsova Maria.M.Kuznetsova@nasa.gov
- Rick Mullinix (Space Weather Explorer) Richard.E.Mullinix@nasa.gov
- Lutz Rastaetter (On-line visualization tool) Lutz.Rastaetteremail@example.com
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.

Global Magnetosphere Simulations with Artificial ConditionsQuiet solar wind conditions at the Earth: Distance from the Sun = 1 au, Dipole Tilt = 11 deg, Vx = 400 km/s, T= 20000 keV, Vy=Vz=0, Bx=By=0
The Earth's magnetosphere at different distances from the Sun for quiet solar wind conditions:
At 1 au: Vx = 400 km/s, T= 20000 keV, Vy=Vz=0, Bx=By=0, N=5nT, Bz= - 5nT Normal Earth magnetic moment Dm_Earth, and dipole tilt equal to 11 deg:
- What if the Earth magnetic dipole had a different tilt angle?
- The role of ionosphere conductance
- What if the Earth magnetic moment differed from the normal value Dm_Earth?
