Updated procedures enable consistent use of a wide network of polar magnetometers to monitor energy flow into the tail of Earth’s magnetosphere during the growth phase of substorms.
With new missions underway and planned, China is stepping up to observe our nearest stellar neighbor.
Amateur radio observations provide a new method for studying large-scale ionospheric disturbances and HF communication impacts, and are important applications in ionospheric space weather monitoring.
The Solar Orbiter just completed its commissioning phase while en route to the Sun. It has already provided valuable looks at solar campfires and Venus’s magnetic fields, and it promises much more.
Enhanced E-region ionization produced by the aurora can be used to reflect signals from over-the-horizon radars and thus enable those radars to better monitor aviation in Arctic regions.
Researchers have developed a new mathematical model to more accurately capture how irregularities in Earth’s atmosphere interrupt signals from Global Navigation Satellite Systems.
Charged particles escape our atmosphere following Earth’s magnetic field and constitute a main source of matter that modulates Sun-Earth interactions.
Researchers present a new pattern-finding technique to better estimate missing data on ionospheric plasma velocities.
Hydrological observations of cosmic ray neutrons scattered by water in soil can also provide information on space weather events such as Forbush decreases and ground level enhancements.
Tamas I. Gombosi was awarded the 2020 John Adam Fleming Medal at the virtual AGU Fall Meeting in December. The medal is for “original research and technical leadership in geomagnetism, atmospheric electricity, aeronomy, space physics, and/or related sciences.”
