Paper Abstract

A new set of models, AE9/AP9/SPM, has been developed for use in space system design and other climatological applications. They describe energetic electron, proton, and plasma fluxes in the Earth’s inner magnetosphere based on 30 independent data sets from satellite-based sensors. The models provide particle flux maps including estimates of both measurement uncertainties and space weather variability. Furthermore, the model architecture permits the Monte-Carlo estimation of the time evolution of fluxes and derived quantities, e.g. the median and 95th percentile, along an arbitrary orbit. This overview will particularly address the latest AE9/AP9 version release.
