ICON Press Release: El Nino Affects Conditions in Space

El Nino affects

The warm El Niño conditions affecting weather around the Pacific Ocean are also affecting conditions in space, according to University of California, Berkeley scientists. See ICON Press-release.

LYON-FEDDER-MOBARRY (LFM) GLOBAL MHD CODE

The LFM Code is an integrated simulation model for the global magnetosphere-ionosphere system. The heart of the model is a time-dependent, ideal MHD calculation of the state of the magnetosphere.
