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 ...
