Space weather application center Ionosphere (SWACI) - a common data base for scientific research — N. Jakowski, C. Mayer, K.D. Missling, H. Barkmann, C. Becker, C. Borries, H. Maass, T. Noack, M. Tegler, V. Wilken, and •M. Danielides — German Aerospace Center (DLR), D-17235 Neustrelitz, Germany
The Space Weather Application Center Ionosphere (SWACI) is a joint project of the Institute of Communications and Navigation (IKN) and the German Remote Data Center (DFD) of the German Aerospace Center, essentially supported by the State Government of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. SWACI (http://swaciweb.dlr.de) operates a powerful data processing system working both in real-time and post-processing modes. Typical data products include European maps of the Total Electron Content (TEC) and corresponding derivatives, updated every 5 minutes. Space based retrievals include radio occultation data as well as a 3D reconstruction of the topside ionosphere. Furthermore, the equivalent slab thickness over the ionosonde station Juliusruh/Germany is offered, updated every 15 min. In addition to the processing of GNSS data, also beacon measurements from various satellites such as NIMS and COSMIC are received and analysed. Although the SWACI service will be fully operational by the end of 2010, SWACI is already available for interested users at a service level reached so far.
