SH41F:
Characteristics, Consequences, and Predictabilities of Large Solar Storms I


Session ID#: 10662

Session Description:
Predicting solar storms and their geomagnetic effects is still a daunting task for space physicists. On the other hand, recent studies have demonstrated that short-term (hours to days) forecasting of space weather is viable – thanks to remote sensing of the Sun and in-situ measurements at Earth orbits from multiple spacecraft, e.g., SOHO, STEREO A/B, SDO, ACE, Wind, and DSCOVR. Observations from these spacecraft can contribute significantly to our understanding of the space weather drivers and can help make realistic predictions of space weather possible, especially when combined with current state-of-art numerical simulations. This special session will focus on characteristics and consequences of large solar storms. Studies of large storm events, including the anecdotal 1859 Carrington event, using theories, numerical simulations, observations, and/or their combination are all invited.
