Preparing for Solar Storms

Aug 26, 2013 |

It may not be possible to prevent devastating space-weather events like solar storms from reaching the earth’s surface, but with enough warning, we can prepare for them. Scientists believe that mapping the earth’s magnetosphere – the magnetic shield that stops most but not all of these storms – is the first step.

The Cloud-Enabled Space Weather Platform

Feb 14, 2011 |

Everett Toews describes the Cloud-Enabled Space Weather Platform, which uses a cloud-based solution to lower the barriers for physicists who are running complex space weather models and simulations. In addition to providing a scalable platform for space weather and magnetosphere research, the resource provides an opportunity for scientific collaboration at the cloud scale.
