Summary
Abstract: The Open Geospace General Circulation Model (Open GGCM) was originally
developed as a magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) model of Earth's magnetosphere at UCLA
in the early 1990's by J. Raeder. Besides solving the resistive MHD equations
in the magnetosphere the model included a rather crude ionospheric boundary
condition consisting of a ionosphere potential solver that served to close the
magnetospheric ... View entire text
