Featured Public Event

GOES-R: Space Weather Monitoring for the 21st Century!

GOES-R: Space Weather Monitoring for the 21st Century!
Speaker:   Frank Eparvier
Date:   Wednesday, October 5, 2016
Time:   7:30 PM
Location:   LSTB (1234 Innovation Drive)
Abstract:  

While Al Roker and other meteorologists may be salivating over the new and improved terrestrial weather data to come from GOES-R, there are many others who are more excited by a different set of anticipated measurements from the new series of NOAA satellites: the space weather data. Space weather impacts many aspects of our technology-dependent society, from GPS to satellite navigation to power grids. In this presentation, GOES-R EXIS lead scientist, Frank Eparvier, will give an overview of space weather, how it affects us, and the exciting new capabilities that GOES-R will provide us for realtime space weather monitoring.
