The CCMC is a multi-agency partnership to enable, support and perform the research and development for next-generation space science and space weather models.
The 8th CCMC Workshop took place last April 11-15, 2016 at Annapolis, Maryland.
Biennial CCMC community workshops are designed as opportunities for an in-depth exchange of experiences, opinions and needs between model owners, science and operational users, educators, agency representatives and the CCMC staff.
To comply with Office of Management and Budge (OMB) Memorandum M-15-13 "Policy to Require Secure Connections across Federal Websites and Web Services", CCMC will start to use the SSL/TLS Certificate issued by NASA by September 23, 2016. We are aware that Federal Common Policy CA is not in the trust store.
While using Firefox accessing CCMC websites you will get "Your connection is not secure" with an error code "SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER". Please add an exception for it, while we investigate other possible solutions.

• submit their forecast in real-time
• quickly view all forecasts at once in real-time
• compare forecasting methods when the event has arrived
Highlighted CCMC services
- Kameleon software: model output from different models can be stored uniformly in a common science data format. Users can request the CDF-formatted output for a CCMC run.
- MAGIC: new magnetogram processing suite of tools.
Model additions/updates at the CCMC
- SWMF: dipole orientation and magnitude options. In an effort to expand the range of science questions that can be probed with the models hosted at CCMC, we have now expanded the range of available dipole orientations and magnitudes in the University of Michigan’s Space Weather Modeling Framework (SWMF). These new parameter ranges allow studies of for example early Earth’s and other exoplanet targets of interest. We welcome our users to explore these new CCMC capabilities and look forward to receiving your feedback.
- TIE-GCM 2.0 version is now available on Runs-On-Request
- The Drag-Based Model (DBM) tool: provides prediction of the interplanetary coronal mass ejection (ICME) expansion and its prediction of arrival at arbitrary location or preselected planet or satellite) in the ecliptic plane.
- The Kinematic Model for CME Deflection(DIPS) has been added to Runs on Request. It predicts the trajectory of a CME in ecliptic plane.
- Non-Linear Force Free coronal magnetic field model (NLFF), is available for Runs on Request.
- PREDICCs is available for Real-Time runs
Runs on Request/Online Visualization changelog
View the log of changes/updates to the 3DView online visualization, as well as announcements regarding occasional correction/re-execution of past ROR requests. The most recent changes were:
Sept. 19, 2016Runs-on-Requests for the CMIT model submitted in the future will use 2.5 by 2.5 degree resolution TIEGCM ionosphere (if requested). Before, all runs used a 5 by 5 degree TIEGCM grid.
The MIX ionosphere electrodynamics grid will be set to 1 by 1 degree resolution for runs using the quad-resolution LFM grid (106x96x128 cells). All coarser LFM grids run with 2 by 2 degree MIX resolution (as did all runs before).
Sept. 7, 2016Runs-on-Requests: The option to track satellites in Global Magnetosphere (GM) requests became unavailable on or after Sept. 2, 2016 due to a loss of a file listing satellite orbit parameters.
The file has been restored and request runs of selected GM models can again include satellite traces. Satellite positions can be visualized with the magnetosphere MHD and ionosphere electrodynamics simulation outputs.
May 18, 2016The run-on-request sytems for Global Magnetosphere (GM), Inner Magnetosphere (IM), Ionosphere-Thermosphere (IT) and Local Physics (LP) now tells the user how far into the submision process they are. "Submit" was replaced by "Next: 2 of 4: Options", "Next (3 of 4: Process solar wind inputs)" or "Next (4 of 4: Finalize request)", as applicable. Only the last form has a "Submit" button.
Apr 6, 2016The instant-run NRLMSISe00 model failed with an un-initialized (zero) year number when attempting to obtain AP and F10.7 index numbers. This error was introduced on March 18 when attempting to fix the warm-up problem with this and the MSIS-90 model.
Apr 1, 2016MMS satellite tracks in magnetosphere: Satellite tracing performed as a post-processing step resulted in a single file named MMS.sat (actually containing MMS-1 data) instead of separate MMS1.sat through MMS4.sat files for each of the satellites. The problem was corrected and affected magnetosphere runs are being reprocessed.
