SHINE Model Validation Study Introduction

There is a large and growing number of models with different algorithms, data sources and levels of approximation being applied to study the corona and inner heliosphere. Reconizing this, at a special session of the SHINE Workshop in the summer of 2011, the community decided to establish a systematic effort to compare these different models and evaluate their absolute and relative performance. It was decided to define a set of test problems to be run by the models and to develop web-based support for the submission, analysis and public dissemination of the results of these model runs. The principal goals of this model comparison are to:

The second call regarding the SHINE workgroup session was sent out on June 11, 2012.
The initial call for submission of model results was emailed to the community on February 14, 2012.

Subsequent sessions were held at SHINE in 2012 and 2014.

At SHINE 2014, the session focussed on two principal themes, a review of the existing web-based design and approach of the project, and the impact that the adoption of time-dependent magnetogram input data will have on this class of models and their validation.
