Title

TDIM ionospheric model TEC maps of the high-latitude northern hemisphere, used in the paper titled "Hemispherical Shifted Symmetry in Polar Cap F-Region Patch Occurrence: A Survey of GPS TEC data from 2015 to 2018"

Description

TDIM ionospheric model was run for the year 2018 at 10-day intervals and 2-hr intervals in UT.

Award Title

Continuing Theoretical Studies of Dynamical Processes in the Ionosphere

Methodology

Data is stored in a 105 x 105 grid centered on the geo-magnetic pole; the magnetic latitude at the edge of the dial grid is 50 degrees. Complete grids were not run, as they were not needed in this study; only that portion located in the "patch inspection region" were run. That region is defined in the paper.
