The Ovation Prime Real-Time (OPRT) product is a real-time forecast and nowcast model
of auroral power and is an operational implementation of the work by Newell et al
(2009). OPRT is run every 5 minutes producing precipitating energy flux for 4 distinct
auroral types in 240 distinct geomagnetic latitude / longitude bins for each hemisphere.
The model?s output is latitudinally bound to polar latitudes greater than 50 degrees
geomagnetic latitude. |
