Session - Neutron Monitor science as a fundamental tool for space weather

C. Plainaki, C. Steigies

This session welcomes papers on all aspects of space weather monitoring and prediction, performed either explicitly or partially through the use of the ground-level Neutron Monitor network.

Focus will be given in modeling efforts, tools and space weather applications developed for an operational setting, aiming to the characterization of the solar energetic particles and CMEs properties and to the prediction of their effects to the Earth's atmosphere.
Papers on neutron dosimetry applications, in the context of human exposure to cosmic radiation at high altitudes, in aircraft and spacecraft, are highly welcome.
Cross-disciplinary issues, including the science performed with instruments like PAMELA, AMS, muon telescopes, solar neutron detectors and other, which can provide significant complementary information to the one derived through the use of ground-level neutron monitor data, are of high relevance to this session.
Moreover, GLE prediction efforts performed through the use of ground-based neutron monitor data, potentially in combination with satellite information and theoretical models predictions, are very welcome.
Presentations on future projects related to space weather applications based on the use of neutron monitor data are encouraged.
