Workshop Abstract

Commissions GHJ - "Workshop on Extreme Space Weather Environments"

Workshop Chair: Mike Hapgood,
Workshop Co-Chair: Terry Onsager
Conveners: Tony Mannucci, Viviane Pierrard, Mauro Messerotti, Ludwig Klein

Over recent years extreme space weather has been recognized as a global risk with significant societal and economic risks affecting many domains, including but not limited to electrical power grids, satellites, aircraft passengers and crew, avionics, GPS, Galileo and other GNSS positioning, navigation and timing systems and communications systems. In order to evaluate the consequences of space weather on these systems it is essential (a) to identify what are the factors in space weather environments that interact with the systems at risk, and then (b) to estimate what are reasonable worst cases for these factors. This workshop will bring together experts and other interested parties to review and refine a process for developing an internationally agreed set of specifications for the extreme space weather environment, and to test the process by applying it to a number of key domains. It is hoped that this will be the first of a series of workshops, hosted by different organizations and fora, developing these specifications.

The workshop will be led by Professor Mike Hapgood of the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and will be hosted by URSI Commissions G, H and J. The focus will be on environments appropriate to the work of these Commissions, namely neutron, proton and electron fluxes, solar radio fluxes, ionospheric electron density enhancements, TEC and related electron gradients and radio scintillation. Talks and related presentations will be by invitation only, however, there will be plenty of opportunities for discussion and possibly for showing targeted data and information. Poster papers will be accepted.

The workshop will require additional registration on the URSI web site (but there is no additional cost). Additional preparatory materials will be sent out prior to the meeting.
