Space Weather Research

Space weather research addresses understanding of the physics of the connected Sun-Earth system. It specifies and predicts the physical conditions in the space that adversely affect the safety of manned space missions and technological systems such as satellites, electronic power grids, communication and navigation systems.

It is supported by major national programs, including the National Space Weather Program (NSWP), the Living With a Star Program (LWS), and a variety of NASA, NSF, DOD and NOAA offices. There is also an International LWS program that involves more than 20 international space agencies.
