The Journal for Space Weather and Space Climate (JSWSC) is seeking new Associate Editors with expertise in the physics of the ionosphere-plasmasphere-magnetosphere system, GNSS based research and applications, and machine learning.


Active region NOAA 3435 developed a magnetic delta and produced several M-class flares. An associated CME had an earth-directed component which was the cause of a moderate geomagnetic storm.


An impressive filament eruption took place on 16 September. The associated coronal mass ejection was earth-directed and created a geomagnetic storm starting already 2 days later.


Starting in September 2023, the E-SWAN WG8 Sustainability will organise regular webinars on topics pertaining to the sustainability of our activities as space scientists.


The magnetic fields at the Sun's poles are in the process of reversing, gradually.


Fundamental Research

The STCE does Fundamental Research.

Public Outreach

Open DoorsThe STCE does public outreach during the STCE Annual Meeting and the Open Doors of the Space Pole in Uccle.

One of the highlights of the Open Doors is always a visit to the Solar Dome. A small introductory presentation is first given in the corridor of the SIDC. Skilled observers and space weather forecasters explain in laymen terminology what sunspots are, how they are observed, why these observations are so important, and how solar eruptions affect us and our technology. Then, the small groups of 10-15 people are guided stairs towards the top of the solar dome. There, the various solar telescopes are shown and their specific applications are discussed. Weather permitting, the visitors can also make solar observations using a projected solar image from the white light solar telescope. During and after the visit, there is plenty of opportunity to ask questions to the guides.
