ENLIL Solar Wind Prediction

This site presents results from an experimental, real-time simulation of corotating and transient solar wind disturbances driven by various coronal models: These results are updated daily and are used for validation of a research ENLIL version, driving coronal models, and various applications. The stable operational ENLIL version is used by NOAA/SWPC (USA), MetOffice (UK), RRA/KSWC (Korea), BOM/IPS (Australia), and ROB (Belgium) for official space weather forecast and by NASA/CCMC (USA) for operational support of their heliospheric and other missions.
