A combination of relativistic particles and artificial intelligence may provide a new way to forecast when a volcano could erupt.
Solar energetic particle events pose an acute risk to space travelers outside the protection of Earth’s magnetic field. A new initiative aims to quantify the danger.
This pioneer in high-energy solar physics devised instruments for observing solar and cosmic ray emissions with which he detected, for the first time, nuclear gamma rays from solar flares.
Improved processing enables satellite-based radiation sensors to match ground-based sensors in providing prompt warnings of the onset of atmospheric radiation storms that can endanger civil aviation.
Most fast coronal mass ejections will be decelerated into ambient solar wind quickly in the inner heliosphere, but some of them continue the deceleration with an even larger amplitude beyond 1 AU.
When solar storms strike, they weaken Earth's defenses against harmful radiation. New satellite measurements reveal just how much.
Scientists look into tracking carbon dioxide within a sequestration reservoir—and spotting possible leaks—by observing naturally generated, fast-moving muons that penetrate the underground storage area.
A new model of how the Sun's 11-year cycle affects climate leads to slight changes in model results on atmospheric chemistry, but temperature and wind results are consistent with the previous model.
A recent analysis of proprietary telecommunications data identifies a potential source of anomalous satellite component performance, and what can be done to prevent this from happening in the future.
Why are coronal mass ejections from the current solar cycle wider than others? Researchers investigate.
