VEx-MAG: Update of service from EPN-TAP V1.0 to EPN-TAP V2.0. VEx-MAG-Graz is the Venus Express magnetic field data center of IWF-OeAW at Graz, currently hosting magnetic field data (4s sampling) from 2006/04/24 to 2012/12/28. Data also available via AMDA.

IMPEx tree: Update of service from EPN-TAP V1.0 to EPN-TAP V2.0. The IMPEx data model, developed during the IMPEx-FP7 project gives access to a wide variety of plasma and magnetic field simulation data of various different Simulation Data Bases (SMDBs), namely of SINP-MSU, FMI-HYBRID, FMI-GUMICS and LATMOS. It also provides access to data by CDPP-AMDA and IRAP-CLWeb. All data and services can also be accessed via the IMPEx Portal.

VEx-MAG: Study of the induced magnetosphere of and Space Weather at Venus. The magnetic field data can e.g. also be compared with simulational data via the tools CDPP-AMDA or CDPP-3DView.

IMPEx tree: The IMPEx data model was originally developed to make observational data easily comparable with simulation data and to fill observational gaps with numerical models. At Mars e.g. simulations of the magnetic field can now be combined with measurements of the plasma environment by Mars Express. See also the IMPEx Demonstrators and Tutorials Website.




The IMPEx Data Model and ProtocolIWF-EPN-TAP Data Center extracts the relevant meta data from the source files and insert them in a meta data (text) file. This file is then further processed by the resource descriptor (vexmag_epn20.rd) that generates the epn_core table and inserts the meta data accordingly.

Access to UCL Magnetodisc model output. The magnetostatic model computes the magnetic field and plasma distribution for different system size of the Jovian and Kronian magnetospheres.

We have identified the necessary EPN-TAP v2 parameters to implement and need to deploy a database which will serve model outputs to the user in both mat and netCDF format.

A candidate use case would be to use our model in Jovian mode, together with the CDPP-3Dview software, in order to predict the magnetic field components which the Juno spacecraft will observe.

Above is a figure from Achilleos, Guio and Arridge (2010) showing some plots of model outputs. See this paper and the .pdf presentation for more details of model background and plots.

KHTM (Kelvin Helmhotz Tearing Mode) Earth+67PIAPS, Rome

Provide access to MHD mixing layer model output. The model is utilized for simulating coupled Kelvin-Helmholtz and tearing mode instabilities at the Earth's magnetopause layer and has been updated for cometary environment.

We have been working on the implementation of the necessary EPN-TAP v2 parameters to create a database which will serve model outputs to the user in ASCII format.

In order to support the interpretation of published magnetometric data, a candidate case would be to investigate the magnetic field configurations and flow shear at the magnetic cavity at 67P. It could complement the studies on the position and the dynamics of the magnetic cavity boundary.
