Space Weather as a Global Challenge 2018

When: Tuesday, July 24, 2018

Where: Embassy of Japan, Washington, DC

Space weather characterizes the regular flow of photons and other charged particles from Sun and irregular solar flares and coronal mass ejections, which can threaten infrastructure on Earth. Governments across the world are attempting to connect space weather research with operationally-affected communities such as satellite operators, utility companies, and airlines. 

The Embassy of Japan and the U.S. Department of State convened this third annual international dialogue focusing on collaborative efforts to better observe, model, predict, and prepare for adverse space weather.
