IPIM : Ionosphere-Plasmasphere IRAP Model

University Toulouse III

Description

The IRAP plasmasphere-ionosphere model (IPIM) describes the transport of the multispecies ionospheric plasma from one hemisphere to the other along convecting and corotating magnetic field lines, taking into account source processes at low altitude such as photoproduction, chemistry, and energization through the coupling with a kinetic code solving the transport of suprathermal electron along the field line. Among the new developments, a 16-moment-based approach is used for the transport equations in order to allow development of strong temperature anisotropy at high altitude and we consider important but often neglected effects, such as inertial acceleration (centrifugal and Coriolis). This model is accessible through transplanet web page for online runs.
