Wing Kp Model Output to Change

Wing Kp Model Output to Change
Wing Kp Model Output to Change
published: Friday, November 13, 2015 15:08 UTC

UPDATE: 2015-11-02

The Wing Kp model output will be modified as SWPC prepares to transition its primary source of solar wind data from ACE to DSCOVR. The "Lead Time" panel will no longer appear at the bottom of the Wing Kp model graphics beginning Tuesday November 3th (see image). Similarly, the Wing Kp model ASCII output will no longer contain columns of data indicating Lead Time. A new Solar Wind Transit Time graphic, developed for DSCOVR but currently using ACE data, is available in prototype here. ASCII data with lead times will soon be available as well. If you have questions or concerns about this change, please provide feedback.
