SA003:
Applications of Space Weather Research





Session ID#: 22876

Session Description:
Improving space weather forecasting and analysis requires scientific insight and operational expertise. In the last several years, concerted efforts to strike the appropriate balance have been emphasized by the basic and applied research programs of NASA, NOAA, USGS, and DOD, as well as many international counterparts. The goal of this session is to provide a venue to showcase new and ongoing efforts connecting space weather research with real-world applications and societal needs, while identifying current obstacles of both a technical and a practical nature. We Invite talks covering the observations, models, and combinations thereof that will enable tomorrow’s operational applications related to space weather in all its forms (e.g., impacts on spacecraft, power grid vulnerabilities, disruptions to transionospheric communication/navigation/geolocation, effects of atmospheric drag on satellites and debris, etc.).
