EUropean Heliospheric FORecasting Information Asset 2.0

Project description

Space weather forecasting

Space weather forecasts are important because radiation from particles from the sun associated with large solar flares can be hazardous to unprotected astronauts, airplane occupants and satellites. The EU-funded EUHFORIA_2.0 project aims to develop the world’s most advanced space weather forecasting tool. The project will address geoeffectiveness, impacts and mitigation, including extreme events, related to solar eruptions, solar wind streams and Solar Energetic Particles, with particular emphasis on its application to forecast Geomagnetically Induced Currents (GICs) and radiation on geospace. The project provides a unique opportunity for Europe to take a leading role in space weather forecasting and to protect its modern technologies and infrastructures both in space and on ground.
