ATMOP splinter at ESWW10

During 10th European Space Weather Week, the ATMOP team will hold a splinter meeting to summarise the project objects and achievements.

We wait you all on Friday 22nd November, at 13:30, more information at http://www.stce.be/esww10/splinters/atmop.php

New DTM 2013 model released

Updated DTM model has been released and it is available through the ATMOP Web interface. You can now download the updated model or run it through the web site.
