CCMC modules on the Earth's magnetosphere

Created by G.Siscoe

This series is intended to supplement an introductory course on magnetospheric physics or space physics. The images in this series have been constructed using global MHD simulations archived at the CCMC under the name General purpose runs for education and research - a large number of runs that simulate the magnetosphere under representative values of solar wind speed and density and different values of the strength and orientation of the interplanetary magnetic field.
