Research Seminar - Susanne Vennerstrøm; Space Weather overview and activities at DTU.
"Space weather" refers to conditions in the space environment that can influence the performance and reliability of space-borne and ground-based technological systems. It is primarily the Sun, which drives space weather through energetic solar phenomena such as coronal mass ejections, solar flares and solar energetic particle events. The problems that the changing space weather impose on society increases with the increasing societal dependence on satellites, and is now widely recognised. Several programs have been launched world-wide to meet the challenge. US is leading the effort but also Europe/ESA are establishing space weather programs. At DTU Space we contribute to these activities by research, monitoring and "experimental forecasting".
