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

Session 8 - Space Systems Engineering: Space Climate Modelling and the Effects of Severe Space Weather Events

Eamonn Daly (European Space Agency); Richard Horne (British Antarctic Survey); Daniel Heynderickx (DH Consultancy); Hugh Evans (European Space Agency); Dave Pitchford (SES), Nigel Meredith (British Antarctic Survey); F. Lei (RadMod Research)
Wednesday 29/11, 9:45 - 13:00

KEYWORDS - Radiation belts; extreme events; spacecraft; radiation effects; charging; space climate

Satellite engineering standards include methods for specification of space climate (e.g. radiation and plasma environments, and their variability). These should be updated to reflect new data analyses and improved. understanding. This session will discuss space climate model improvements, particularly related to extreme (Carrington-type) events, and also those resulting from improved analyses of radiation belts from LEO to GEO. Effects on space systems, and their trends, will also be presented.
