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

  • GEM will be holding its annual summer workshop June 21-26, 2009 at the Snowmass Conference Center in Snowmass, Colorado. Details can be found at the GEM Workshop Web Site.
  • The GEM Steering Committee met at the December 2008 GEM Mini-workshop in San Francisco prior to the AGU Meeting. Meeting notes are available at:
