Christina Plainaki - The science of Space Weather: from key drivers to Solar System exploration

The science of Space Weather: from key drivers to Solar System exploration

by Christina Plainaki (Agenzia Spaziale Italiana)

Abstract: Circumterrestrial space weather is predominantly driven by the effects of the variability of the solar activity in the Earth’s magnetosphere and upper atmosphere. More generally, the space weather conditions around a planetary body are strongly driven by the interactions between the body itself and its local space environment, where perturbations of solar or non-solar origin may occur. During this talk I will discuss some examples of space weather science approaches, with an eye towards Solar System exploration. Indeed, with increasing efforts in space exploration, the need for an in depth understanding of the variability of space environments around different solar system bodies emerges. The science of planetary space weather is strongly interdisciplinary and can benefit from the lessons learned from the circumterrestrial case and Heliophysics in general. Theoretical and/or data-driven modeling in this sense is an important tool in the hands of space weather scientists.
