Please consider submitting an abstract for the session on geomagnetic
indices at IUGG 2019 in Montreal.
A18 - Dependable, Long-Term Geomagnetic Indices and Modern, Index-Based
Services: 70th Anniversary Of the Kp Index
70 year ago, in 1949, Julius Bartels introduced the geomagnetic Kp
index. This symposium is dedicated to the production, prediction and
application of geomagnetic indices.
These indices, derived from geomagnetic observations, quantify phenomena
like the energy transfer from the solar wind or the strength of the ring
current. They are used as space weather indicators and as input for
empirical models of the space environment. Due to their long-term
stability they can be used to quantify space climate. Next to the
established IAGA-endorsed geomagnetic indices there also exist
researcher-driven indices to address specific scientific questions.
