Spacecraft : Select a planet/spacecraft to connect magnetically to the Sun
Coronal Magnetic field : Select a coronal model to connect photosphere-upper corona
Interplanetary magnetic field : Select solar wind model to connect upper corona - planet/spacecraft
Propagation mode : Select the type of propagation either instantaneous (EM LAG) or at a constant solar wind plasma speed (SW LAG)
Time & Date : Choose the date you like and then select between 4 different times : 00:00; 06:00, 12:00, 18:00.
You cannot choose a date before 2016-01-01 and past 10 days from current date.
Reliability Test (WL) Assess the reliability of the coronal magnetic reconstruction. Compare the Heliospheric Current Sheet (HCS) produced by the magnetic reconstruction with the Maximum Streamer Beam observed in White Light imagery.
We are currently working on an API. The user will be able to download maps and parameters files without using the form, only by building an URL following certain rules.
FIREFOX IS RECOMMENDED FOR THIS PART
If you only need parameters files, this is your way. Construct your URl in the same way than before, just change 'api' by 'json_api'. Welp, this is not really a JSON API, files are ascii format, but you can download them in json from Firefox.
Unfortunatlly, you cannot download the files with Chrome but you can still view them.
More tests need to be run for this part. Please be aware that this is a work in progress.
If you're using a SAFARI browser, you need to enter the DATE manually, following this format : YEAR-MONTH-DAY
YEAR is four digits (like 2019), MONTH is two (like 05) and DAY two digits also (like 23)
Here is a full and functionnal example : 2019-05-23
Try different TIME for a DATE, sometimes there are some maps but not at the TIME you think.
For more information on the Magnetic Connectivity Tool and its role for the Solar Orbiter mission, we refer the user to the article published by ESA's Modelling and Data Analysis Working Group (MADAWG): Rouillard et al. 2020.
2D ecliptic plots are produced from the Solar-MACH github code, which was slightly modified to enable overplotting multiple Parker spirals for each body. The Solar-MACH tool was originally developed at Kiel University, Germany and further discussed within the ESA Heliophysics Archives USer (HAUS) group (original code: https://github.com/esdc-esac-esa-int/Solar-MACH).
