Support of The Center for Integrated Space Weather Modeling (CISM)

The Center for Integrated Space Weather Modeling (CISM) is a National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center initiated in 2002. The consortium is led by Principal Investigator Professor W. Jeffrey Hughes at Boston University. Its goal is to create an end-to-end model of the space environment from the surface of the Sun to the bottom of the Earth's ionosphere. HAO is responsible for developing and testing the ionosphere/thermosphere models for CISM. Additional contributions to the magnetospheric and solar components are made by other HAO participants.
