|Abstract: ||A numerical model (CLIMM) is developed that adopts functions of two Chapman layers to compute Mars ionospheric electron densities at given local solar zenith angle and height. Electron density profiles derived from Mars Global Survey (MGS)-to-Earth radio occultation measurements collected during 1998 through 2005 are used to fit the model. The present model does not include variations with solar extreme ultraviolet (EUV) radiation cycles and seasons, and may have increased errors at lower latitudes. A more sophisticated model taking into account these variations is being developed and will be available in the future.|
