Session 10 - Space Weather Operations & Services

Suzy Bingham (Met Office), Sophie Murray (Trinity College Dublin)
Thursday 8/11, 09:00-10:30 & 11:15-12:45
MTC 00.10, Large lecture room

Providing operational space weather services helps build technological and infrastructural resilience during space weather events. This plenary session aims to bring together a number of key areas which are essential to the successful delivery of these services. We welcome contributions on new developments in space weather operations and services, including best practices in transitioning tools or models from research to operations. Since it is important to understand the strengths and limitations of models and forecasts developed for operations, we also encourage contributions on metrics, verification, and validation of space weather applications.

The two plenary sessions during ESWW15 will be linked by the theme of extreme event response to mitigate the impacts within and between user domains. Taking the – severe but not extreme – space weather events of September 2017 as a guide, the two sessions will conclude with 45min panel discussions. The final part of this session will include a panel discussion addressing topics arising from the Tuesday User Plenary Session. We will promote discussion on whether user requirements during severe events can be satisfied, where there are gaps in capability, and potential solutions to enable user needs to be successfully met.
