Abstract With the help of STAR (Spatial Triaxial Accelerometer for Research) accelerometer measurements on board CHAMP (Challenging Minisatellite Payload), the global distributions of total mass density changes at about 400 km height during major magnetic storms are studied, aiming to improve the capability of current thermospheric model for predicting the storm-time mass density distribution. The density calculated by the NRLMSISE-00 model without using the geomagnetic active index as input is… CONTINUE READING
