Space Environment Modeling

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

Collection includes presentation materials and outputs from operational space environment models produced by the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) and other related model datasets. Included are; 1) regional space environment specifications of the atmospheric total electon content (TEC) for the continental United States (CONUS), 2) global specifications of ionospheric D-region (radio-wave) absorption and 3) interplanetary solar-wind specifications for predicting the propagation and arrival times of geoeffective coronal mass ejections (CME). Also included is a 30-year space environment climatogy produced by the NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (formerly NGDC).
