Session 14 - Space weather applications of global neutron monitor network

Alexander Mishev (ReSolve University of Oulu)
Friday 18/11, 10:00-12:00

The world wide neutron monitor (NM) network provide continuous records of cosmic ray (CR) variations. Over the years it have been the main multi-instrument tool for the analysis of ground level enhancements (GLEs). Nowadays, the majority of the existing NMs are included in a database, neutron monitor database (NMDB), which provides information practically in a real time. This allows the community to develop and/or to enhance methods for now cast or/and forecast of space weather events. At present a progress of modeling related to both application of NM for GLE analysis as well space weather is achieved.

The session is devoted to recent works related to all aspects of space weather. Focus will be given in modeling aiming the now cast of aircrew dose exposure, specifically during GLEs. Progress reports of modeling of particle propagation in the Earth atmosphere and magnetosphere towards space weather applications are welcome. Comparison of recent models with experimental results are very welcome.

The usage and comparison of the global NM network within satellite-born instruments as well as other ground based, which provide complementary information to NM data are relevant to this session.

Reports of enhancement future projects related to space weather and application of the existing NM network are also welcome.
