Space Weather Instrumentation, Measurement, Modelling and Risk (SWIMMR) kick off meeting
SWIMMR is a £20 million, four-year programme that will improve the UK's capabilities for space weather monitoring and prediction. There will be an emphasis on space radiation, which can affect aircraft systems, changes in the upper atmosphere, affecting communications, and surges in the current in power grids and other ground-level systems. These are significant risks to the infrastructures we rely on in daily life and are recorded in the UK's National Risk Register.
The SWIMMR kick off meeting will be held on 26 November 2019 in the Wolfson Library of the Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AG, starting at 11:00am (coffee available from 10:30am).
Please join this kick-off meeting if you would like further information on the project.
Pre-registration for the event is required, as capacity is limited. Please register via Eventbrite.
