From Sun to Mud: Adventures of a Model Developer

Abstract

From Sun to Mud: Adventures of a Model Developer Over the last decade physics-based models of the space environment progressed considerably. Today, there is growing recognition that large-scale numerical models contribute considerably to space physics research by putting spatially and temporally limited observations in global context. This talk will use the experience of the space plasma modeling group at the University of Michigan to show the progress, successes, failures and challenges of the end-to-end space weather modeling effort.
