Ionosphere-Thermosphere Data Published in "Challenges to Understanding the Earth's Ionosphere and Thermosphere"

These data sets accompany an AGU Centennial publication "Challenges to Understanding the Earth's Ionosphere and Thermosphere" by R.A. Heelis and A. Maute. The data file is output from a thermosphere-ionosphere-electrodynamics general circulation model (TIEGCM) simulation described in the publication (DOI:10.1007/s11214-017-0330-3). The simulation is for 2009 solar minimum conditions. The ionospheric current and neutral wind in file "" is based on a stand-alone dynamo model (described in doi:10.1002/2017JA024841) driven by the Horizontal Wind Model and ionospheric conductivities based on empirical models of the ionosphere (IRI) and the neutral atmosphere (MSIS). The calculation is for solar medium condition (F10.7=130) and DOY 181 under geomagnetic quiescent times.
