  1. Space WeatherSolar MagnetismMagnetic Measurements Allen Gary Center for Space Plasma and Aeronomic The University of Alabama in Huntsville

  2. The Definition - Space WeatherThe conditions on the Sun, in Interplanetary Space, and in Earth’s uppermost atmosphere that can influence the performance of space-borne and ground-based technological systems and endanger human life or health. The Driver - Solar Magnetic Eruptive Events*  X-Rays, Cosmic Rays, and Solar Wind Event Detectors  Geo-Space Environment * Flares and Coronal Mass Ejections

  3. It all starts at the Sun Flare or Coronal Mass Ejection: Violent release of as much as a billion tons of matter – A small asteroid (d=0.5 mile) The energy release can be equivalent of 40 billion Hiroshima-sized atomic bombs in radiation & particles. (5x kinetic energy of ISS) Earth RSun=109 REarth 1AU=215 Rsun=Earth-Sun distance REarth=4000miles
