Transforming the Understanding and Predictability of Space Weather
CGS is supported by NASA under Cooperative Agreement 80NSSC22M0163.
The vast spatio-temporal scales spanned in geospace modeling require a level of science second to none. Slava Merkin, Director of the NASA DRIVE Science Center for Geospace Storms (CGS), and his team are revolutionizing our understanding of, and response to, Earth-Sun interactions.
Here is an excellent contribution from our own Director of CGS, Slava Merkin, to the National Geographic article of how solar activity is increasing for solar cycle 25. This is a reminder of the many wonders of the near-Earth space environment, and that state-of-the-art modeling of geospace storms is essential to the survivability and livelihood of our technologically advanced civilization.
