Geospace Environment Modeling (GEM) Image:Nsf.gif

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 Sciences.

What's New

A GEM mini-workshop was held on Sunday December 14, 2008 prior to AGU in the San Francisco Marriott Hotel. The sessions began at 12 noon in the Nob Hill Rooms A, B, C, and D. In addition, there was a THEMIS Satellite data/software workshop in Salon 15 room running from 1:00-4:00pm.

Please visit the GEM Mini-workshop Web Site for details, including the workshop schedule and registration information.
