12 Space Weather Journals and Books

13 The Importance of Space Weather Space missions have led to fundamentally new understandings of physical processes in the Sun-Earth system and Heliosphere (e.g., solar EUV/coronal imaging, tracking of solar storms in space, solar wind impact on planets) Modern societies infrastructures are vulnerable to space weather effects (e.g., telecommunication/navigation systems, power grids) Strengthens interdisciplenary science and addresses fundamental physics questions (e.g., solar and magnetospheric physics heliopsheric physics, origin of solar wind and CMEs, knowledge on technology impacts of debris, and energetic charged particles, research on atmospheric processes and climate) Need for Future Space Exploration (robotic and human)

14 Why going from Research to Operations (R2O)? Multi-point space missions and complementary ground-based networks (solar optical and radio telescopes) are providing the relevant measurements needed to quantify space weather processes (e.g., solar corona, solar wind and CME modelling, atmospheric impact of specific solar EUV spectral lines) Supports and focusses on-going research (e.g., determining solar conditions leading to extreme space weather events in measurable physics units, such as CME speeds, photospheric B-flux, etc.) Help mitigating space weather effects on societal infrastructures Helps facilitating reliable mission operations and safe robotic and human space exploration

15 Importance of Space Weather for the FP8 programme Hearing December 2010 Will support on-going and planned activities of Europe s space research community in general (exploitation of data from ESA, NASA, national missions, etc.) Will help facilitate space weather baseline research needed to set path for establishing operational space weather forecast systems for dedicated purposes (communication system, solar system exploration missions) Will enable development of space weather products out of dedicated research results (e.g., cell phone forecasts, real-time solar monitoring) Will complement EU/ESA Space Situational Awareness Programme

16 Space Situational Awareness (SSA) ESA/EU Programm (now to 2018/20) SSA-Components: - Observation and Tracking of Objects - Earth Observations - Space Weather Ongoing ESA SWE Studies as PP

17 ESA SN-II Project: Implentation Design Study of Space Weather Instruments ( ) 278 SSA SWE CRD (Customer Requirement Specifications) Service Products Analysed 8 Top Level SWE Instrument Groups Identified 25 SWE Instrument Types Identified and Parametrised

18 ESA SSA Operational System Layout

19 Sample EU FP7 Project AFFECTS Advanced Forecast For Ensuring Communications Through Space

20 AFFECTS Project Goals State of the art analysis and modeling of the Sun-Earth chain of effects on the Earth's ionosphere and their subsequent impacts on communication systems Quantitative and timely (advanced) forecast Provision of Europe s first advanced early warning and space weather forecast system Timeline: 1 st March 2011 until 28 th February 2014
