CLASP Seminar Series: Dr. Joe Huba
WHEN: October 10, 2019 3:30 pm-5:00 pm
CLASP is very pleased to welcome Dr. Joe Huba of the Naval Research Laboratory.
Dr. Huba will give a presentation titled:
"SAMI3: The Evolution of an Ionosphere/Plasmasphere Model"
Abstract: The development of the ionosphere/plasmasphere model SAMI3 is described. The emphasis is on the challenges of building such a model and the decision making process in choosing the appropriate numerical algorithms to solve the underlying first-principles physics equations. Some of the numerical issues discussed are the numerical grid, semi-implicit and finite volume transport schemes, and flux corrected transport. These will be juxtaposed with the attendant
scientific inquiries and results. Some of the physics issues
highlighted are the prediction of an electron density 'hole' in the
topside (1500 km) equatorial ionosphere, the regional and global
modeling of equatorial spread F, metal ions in the E region, and
