Real-time Radiation Belt Forecast

Real time forecast

Two-day radiation belt forecast of 1 MeV electrons using the data-assimilative VERB code, real-time ARASE, ACE, and GOES data. Kp index for the previous 7 days are obtained from GFZ recent and previous month nowcast. 3-day Kp forecast is obtained from the Space Weather Prediction Center. Forecasts are conducted automatically every hour at GFZ (As a part of European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 870452 (PAGER)). Version 2.0 of the code computes the nowcast and forecast fluxes from reanalysis directly using the T89 magnetic field model.
