Summary
Abstract: BATS-R-US, the Block-Adaptive-Tree-Solarwind-Roe-Upwind-Scheme, was developed
by the Computational Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) Group at the University of
Michigan, now Center for Space Environment Modeling (CSEM). It was designed
using the Message Passing Interface (MPI) and the Fortran90 standard and
executes on a massively parallel computer system.

The BATS-R-US code solves 3D MHD equations in finite volume form using
numerical methods related to Roe's Approximate Riemann Solver. BATSRUS uses an
adaptive grid composed of rectangular blocks arranged in varying degrees of
spatial refinement levels. The magnetospheric MHD part is attached to an
ionospheric potential solver that provides electric potentials and conductances
in the ionosphere from magnetospheric field-aligned currents.

The BATS-R-US model is now part of the Space Weather Modeling Framework (SWMF).
BATS-R-US request runs for the magnetosphere are now executed using SWMF/GM
(coupled with SWMF/IE).A SWMF run of the magnetosphere at CCMC can include the
Rice Convection Model (RCM) in the inner magnetosphere (SWMF/IM) in addition to
the BATS-R-US MHD module of the global magnetosphere (GM) and the ionospheric
electrodynamics (IE) potential solver.

If a SWMF/(BATSRUS + RCM)run is requested, the RCM modifies the plasma pressure
distribution in the inner magnetosphere and changes the resulting field-aligned
currents in the ionosphere (yields more realistic Region-1 currents). The RCM
inside SWMF does not generate any outputs.
