WP4: Empirical models of the electromagnetic wave environment

This WP will develop new empirical models of electromagnetic wave modes in the magnetosphere, such as chorus and exohiss, equatorial noise, plasmaspheric hiss, and electromagnetic ion cyclotron waves, driven by empirical models of the plasma density and Kp (performed in WP3) and solar wind conditions (performed in WP2).
This work will be based on available measurements of relevant ESA and NASA spacecraft missions, improving coverage and accuracy of the models based on occurrence rates above the noise level, and taking advantage of a detailed analysis of the high-latitude wave environment.
