Justification for the workshop

This workshop concerns the development and use of coupled models of the magnetosphere-ionosphere-thermopshere system, engaging both CEDAR and GEM communities. A 2-hour workshop, focused on the TIE-GCM, will be followed by a 2-hour workshop focused on the CMIT model (of which the TIE-GCM is a major component).

Special technology requests

Internet access


The TIE-GCM and CMIT Working Group workshop is a forum for developers and users of these models to exchange information, describe recent results, and obtain assistance in their use and interpretation. Overview talks describing the models will be presented, tutorials on model use and output analysis will be provided, and talks describing modeling issues, model usage, and comparison with measurements, are solicited. Developers and users of similar types of models are also encouraged to present results and comparisons. Our objective is for an informal workshop with plenty of time for questions and discussion.
