ST5.1/NH8.6Space Weather and its Effects on Terrestrial and Geo-Space Environments: Science and Applications (co-organized)
|Convener: Norma B. Crosby | Co-Conveners: Mirela Voiculescu , Aleksey Dmitriev
This session gathers together scientists with expertise in various fields of solar-terrestrial physics that deal with the effects of space phenomena on different levels of geo-space. Effects range from those observed on spacecraft related activities all the way down to Earth, including technological systems, human health and the Earth's climate. We welcome contributions (theoretical and observational) as well as applied (effects on terrestrial and geo-space environments), on all aspects of space weather. Contributions related to the ESA Space Situational Awareness (SSA) programme, or the EU FP7 programme, are very welcome. We look forward to a dynamic and interdisciplinary session.
Solicited Speaker: Dr. Ioanna Tsagouri "On the assessment of space weather models for operational use: evaluation of the performance of ionospheric forecasting models"
