Transforming the Understanding and Predictability of Space Weather
CGS is supported by NASA under Cooperative Agreement 80NSSC22M0163.
Presentation by deputy director of CGS, Dr. Mike Wiltberger: From numbers to images: Visualizing space weather
Join Dr. Mike Wiltberger, deputy director for the NASA Science Center for GeospaceStorms (CGS), for an engaging talk on visualizing space weather phenomena. The event is virtual & registration is free on March 30 at 4:30pm (Eastern).
Data-mining helps steer MAGE to better simulation of substorms
JGR Space Physics
CGS postdoc, Dr. Harry Arnold, has used data mining reconstructions of the Earth’s magnetic field to identify regions where magnetic energy is converted to plasma energy (reconnection) during substorms. By placing resistivity in those locations in MAGE, Harry was able to successfully reproduce reconnection to match observations and suppress near-Earth reconnection that would otherwise take place.
CGS collaborators at TUWien funded to facilitate interactive sharing of HPC research
OpenScienceLabs for high-performance computing (HPC): EU to fund CGS collaborators at TUWien after successfully proving first use-case of cloud-native collaboration on MAGE. 400k Euros were awarded by Géant to facilitate research teams to share their HPC codes interactively on the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) while further use cases of MAGE are being prototyped at CGS together with the Austrian Open Cloud Community.
CGS at a Glance
One of the critical grand challenges of Solar and Space Physics today is understanding and predicting stormtime geospace spanning altitudes from a few tens to millions of kilometers.
