ENLIL: Time-Dependent 3D MHD Model of the Heliosphere
Entry ID: ENLIL
[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: ENLIL is a time-dependent 3D MHD model of the heliosphere. It solves for plasma
mass, momentum and energy density, and magnetic field, using a
Flux-Corrected-Transport (FCT) algorithm. Its inner radial boundary is located
beyond the sonic point, typically at 21.5 or 30 solar radii. It can accept
boundary condition information from either the WSA or MAS models. The outer
radial boundary can be adjusted to include planets or spacecraft of interest
(eg 2 AU to include both Earth and Mars, 5 AU to include Ulysses, 10 AU to
include Cassini). It covers 60 degrees north to 60 degrees south in latitude
and 360 degrees in azimuth.
