Community Modeling and Diagnostic Tool Development

One of the cornerstones of HAO’s activities lies in the development and support for a series of numerical models that are freely available to the broad research community. Among the models supported are the Thermosphere-Ionosphere-Electrodynamic General Circulation Model (TIE-GCM), the Coupled Magnetosphere Ionosphere Thermosphere Model (CMIT), and the Extended Whole Atmosphere Community Climate Model (WACCM-X). HAO’s staff support these models and welcome the community to collaborate on research projects, participate in development, or use them in independent research.
