Home page » Aims
To research the use of solar observations (eg. extreme ultraviolet images, X-ray observations, radio emissions) and models (eg. magneto-hydrodynamic models of flux tubes) for predicting energetic particle events;
To research the use of solar observations and models (as above) for predicting Coronal Mass Ejections (CME);
To research the modelling and prediction of solar extreme ultraviolet radiation (EUV) which affects atmospheric density and hence drag on satellites at low Earth orbit altitudes.
To liaise with COST Action 271 (http://www.cost271.rl.ac.uk/) where monitoring and modelling of solar activity is relevant to ionospheric radiopropagation;
Liaise with COST Action 724 Working Group 4 to ensure relevant data andmodels are incorporated in a European Space Weather Network.
