ILWS/COSPAR Space Weather Roadmap: "Understanding space weather to shield society"
At the 2012 COSPAR general assembly in Mysore India, the ILWS Steering Committee and COSPAR Panel on Space Weather proposed the establishment of a Space Weather roadmap. The roadmap "Understanding Space Weather to Shield Society," whose objective is to identify key areas of research leading to a demonstrable improvement in service provision capability in the short, medium and longer term, is now available. The Space Weather roadmap study group was led by Dr. C. Schrijver (Lockheed Martin, USA) and Dr. K. Kauristie (Finnish Meteorological Institute, Helsinki, Finland).
