Aims and Scope
Space Weather: The International Journal of Research and Applications is devoted to understanding and forecasting space weather. The scope of understanding and forecasting includes: origins, propagation and interactions of solar-produced processes within geospace; interactions in Earth’s space-atmosphere interface region produced by disturbances from above and below; influences of cosmic rays on humans, hardware and signals; and comparisons of the these types of interactions and influences with the atmospheres of neighboring planets and Earth’s moon. Manuscripts should emphasize impacts on technical systems including telecommunications, transportation, electric power, satellite navigation, avionics/spacecraft design and operations, human spaceflight, and other systems. Manuscripts that describe models or space environment climatology should clearly state how the results can be applied.
Papers include original research articles as well as feature articles, and commentary.
Space Weather is a research resource that also provides news and information for space weather professionals. Space Weather publishes:
- peer-reviewed articles presenting the latest engineering and science research in the field, including studies of the response of technical systems to specific space weather events, predictions of detrimental space weather impacts, and effects of natural radiation on aerospace systems;
- news and feature articles providing up-to-date coverage of government agency initiatives worldwide and space weather activities of the commercial sector;
- letters, policy and opinion articles offering an exchange of ideas; and
- editorial comments and highlights on current community issues.
Space Weather is published by the American Geophysical Union. A digest of the online publication, Space Weather Quarterly (ISSN 1539-4964), is distributed four times a year free of charge.
