Modelling

Transplanet – Earth, Mars (Venus), Jupiter (Saturn)

The Centre de Données de Physique des Plasmas (CDPP) within the Institut de Recherche en Astrophysique et Planétologie (IRAP/CNRS) has developed an online version of the hybrid-fluid TRANSPLANET ionospheric model (Marchaudon and Blelly, 2015) that will enable users to make runs on request for Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.

Mars Radiation Environment

Aberystwyth University (ABER) together with the Institute of Aerospace Medicine (DLR Cologne) will develop a Mars radiation surface environment model, using modelled average conditions available from Planetocosmics and synthesised into look-up tables parameterized to variable solar wind conditions at Mars.

Giant planet magnetodiscs

The University College of London (UCL) will adapt the parametric magnetodisc model for Jupiter and Saturn and their space environments in order to take into account realistic, rapid solar wind compressions, based on time-dependent predictions of dynamic pressure from the CDPP Propagation Tool and/or observations of the solar wind at Jupiter orbit.

Jupiter’s thermosphere

The University College of London (UCL) will adapt the 2D thermospheric models available for Jupiter and its space environment in order to take into account realistic, rapid solar wind compressions, based on time-dependent predictions of dynamic pressure from the CDPP Propagation Tool and/or observations of the solar wind at Jupiter orbit.
