t06 - Improving our Sun-to-Belts nowcasting and forecasting capabilities

TDM type: 3. Service/Project Feedback

There is a recognized need for accurate nowcasting and forecasting of the Van Allen radiation belts, as they are a space hazard posing significant risks for spacecraft. The three space weather projects selected for funding in 2019 by the European Commission (EUHFORIA 2.0, PAGER and SafeSpace) deal with all aspects of solar disturbance identification, the propagation of the resulting interplanetary disturbances to geospace and with the effects of these disturbances on the Van Allen belts, but also on other parts of geospace. The presentations on the concept, objectives, achievements and challenges of three EC projects, focusing on different aspects of the Sun-to-Belts chain,will be followed by active interaction with the participants.
