Seminar Abstract:

NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) is the nation’s official civilian source of space weather watches, warnings and alerts with a mission to “deliver space weather products and services that meet the evolving needs of the nation.” The scope of SWPC activities ranges from understanding the needs of those affected by space weather to the delivery of products and services that protect national assets and human activities in space and on the ground. In this presentation I will present recent highlights of SWPC progress, plans and partnerships for transitioning models and observations to support space weather forecasters and customers.
