The SWAMI project is an H2020 European Union research activity started in January 2018 and lasting three years, aiming to provide an improved and comprehensive representation of the neutral atmosphere from the surface to 1500 km altitude by developing the new MOWA model, which is based on a coupling between existing models that represent different parts of the near-Earth space environment, and by exploiting new atmospheric and geomagnetic data.

The SWAMI project shall aim to provide an improved and comprehensive representation of the neutral atmosphere from the surface to 1500 km altitude by developing the new MOWA model, which is based on a coupling between existing models that represent different parts of the near-Earth space environment, and by exploiting new atmospheric and geomagnetic data. New high-cadence geomagnetic indices (Hp) will be developed and used to drive the model, enabling accurate phasing of storm events.

SWAMI proposes an innovative approach for the Space Weather models. This is a considerable advance which is one very important step in the development of coupled “Sun to Earth” models for considerably enhanced space weather forecasts, by blending the extended UM and the DTM we shall produce a first European model (MOWA), which represents the whole atmosphere from the surface to above the exobase.
