Nowcasting of the plasmapause location

The nowcasting of the plasmapausei location is rebuilt every hour and is using:

  • the plasmapausei location model developed by V. Pierrard (BIRA-IASB)
    (access model)
  • the IRF KPi forecast

The location of the plasmapausei is obtained using the convectioni electric field model E5D and the associated magnetic field M2, assuming corotationi and plasmapausei formation by the quasi-interchange instability mechanism.
