written

It

is

primarily

...

used

to

better

understand

...

Earth's

...

Magnetosphere.

...

The

LFM

...

can

...

be

...

coupled

...

with

...

a

...

variety

...

of

...

models

...

to

...

aide

...

in

...

understanding

...

of

...

the

...

physical

...

processes

...

in

...

Geospace

...

,

...

such

...

as:

...

  • Magnetosphere

  • Ionosphere

...

  • Coupler/Solver

  • Rice Convection Model (RCM)
    The coupled combination of models is called the LTR (LFM-TIEGCM-RCM).
