Supported Models

SAMI2

Supports the SAMI2 (Sami2 is Another Model of the Ionosphere) model through the sami2py interface. Sami2py is a python module that runs the SAMI2 model, as well as archives, loads and plots the resulting modeled values. SAMI2 is a model developed by the Naval Research Laboratory to simulate the motions of plasma in a 2D ionospheric environment along a dipole magnetic field [Huba et al, 2000]. Information about this model can be found at the sami2py github page, along with a list of references.

TIE-GCM

Supports the UCAR (University Corporation for Atmospheric Research) model, Thermosphere-Ionosphere-Electrodynamics General Circulation Model (TIE-GCM). Information about this model can be found at the UCAR TIE-GCM website, along with a list of the principle papers.
