from ground to space. It models the
of the atmosphere's components. A primary use of this model is to aid predictions of
orbital decay due to
. This model has also been used by astronomers to calculate the mass of air between telescopes and laser beams in order to assess the impact of laser guide stars on the non-lasing telescopes.
The model, developed by Mike Picone, Alan Hedin, and Doug Drob, is based on the earlier models MSIS-86 and MSISE-90, but updated with actual satellite drag data. It also predicts anomalous oxygen.
stands for the
US Naval Research Laboratory
stands for Mass Spectrometer and Incoherent Scatter Radar respectively, the two primary data sources for development of earlier versions of the model.

According to the NRL website, NRLMSISE-00 is the standard for international space research.
The inputs for the model are;
Year and day
