Fourteenth European Space Weather Week
Nov 27 - Dec 1, 2017, Ostend, Belgium

Session 11 - Space Weather effects in the ionosphere and thermosphere: advances in monitoring, modeling and mitigation techniques

Anna Belehaki (NOA); Jean Lilensten (IPAG/CNRS)
Thursday 30/11, 9:45 - 13:00

KEYWORDS - ionosphere-thermosphere measurements, ionosphere-thermosphere modelling and forecasting, space weather products and services, proxies, indices, space weather effects, mitigation techniques

The session aims at exploring recent advances in ionosphere-thermosphere measurement techniques (in situ and remote sensing), in modeling, nowcasting and forecasting under all possible space weather conditions, from quiet to extremely disturbed. Emphasis will be given on new space weather products and services derived with the above techniques, including indices and proxies to support communication, navigation, positioning systems, satellites’ orbitography and mitigation technologies.
