Geospace Environment Modeling (GEM)

Geospace Environment Modeling (GEM) is a broad-based, community-initiated research program on the physics of the Earth's magnetosphere and the coupling of the magnetosphere to the atmosphere and to the solar wind. The purpose of the GEM program is to support basic research into the dynamical and structural properties of geospace, leading to the construction of a global Geospace General Circulation Model (GGCM) with predictive capability. This GGCM model will be modularized and will complement parallel developments of magnetohydrodynamic models. The strategy for achieving GEM goals is to undertake a series of campaigns and focus groups, in both theory and observational modes, each focusing on particular aspects of the geospace environment.

The Geospace Environment Modeling (GEM) program is sponsored by National Science Foundation (NSF) Division of Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences.


What's New

  • The minutes of the GEM Steering Committee Meeting at the Mini-GEM Workshop in December 2017 are available here and in the Documents and Reports Section.
  • GEM will hold its annual Summer Workshop on June 17-23, 2018 at the Eldorado Hotel in Santa Fe, New Mexico. See details at the GEM Meeting Website.
  • GEM held its annual Mini GEM workshop on December 10, 2017 at the Hilton Garden Inn New Orleans Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.

GEM Best Practice

The GEM Best Practice document is provided as an informal guide for existing, new, and future members of the GEM Steering Committee. It also includes advice from previous Focus Group leaders on how to propose and run a Focus Group.

Anti-Harassment Policy for GEM Meetings and Activities

GEM is committed to ensuring that all participants in all GEM activities have an environment that is free from harassment. This policy applies to all attendees at GEM activities including scientists, students, guests, staff, and contractors participating in scientific sessions, auxiliary meetings, and social events associated with any GEM gathering or other activity. See the GEM Anti-Harassment Policy for details.
