NOAA’s weather satellites at geosynchronous orbit also measure space weather and a new series of instruments bring improved capabilities for monitoring and science discovery.
The assessment of space weather event forecasts would benefit from more nuanced approaches that take account of event intensities peaking near the thresholds used to identify such events.
Simulations of radiation storm fluxes on real flight paths highlight how severe space weather could expose aircrew and passengers on busy transatlantic routes to significant radiation doses.
Better real-time estimates of thermospheric density are vital to the safe management of satellite traffic in Low Earth orbit, ensuring those satellites continue to deliver critical services.
Researchers turned to crowdsourced science to identify patterns in coronal mass ejections.
Lyman-alpha emissions convey a major part of the solar-flare photon energy reaching Earth and play a significant role in flare-driven enhancements of ionospheric conductivity.
A NASA mission is observing airglow in the upper atmosphere and uncovering what it tells us about Earth’s space weather system.
A short, must-read, report for anyone developing new space weather forecasts.
The field of space weather forecasting could take cues from its Earthly counterpart to increase the reliability of models as well as warning times ahead of inbound solar storms.
Solar features analogous to major atmospheric waves on Earth could offer more advanced warning of harmful solar storms.
