Session CD6 - Near Earth Space Radiation and Plasma Environment: Science and Space Weather Applications

Yihua Zheng, onsite (NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, USA), Ian Mann (University of Alberta, Canada), Natalia Yu Ganushkina (Finnish Meteorological Institute, Finland/University OF Michigan, USA)

Near-Earth space is a region consisting of diverse populations of particles spanning a broad energy range from a few eV to 100s MeVs that could lead to different space weather impacts on space hardware and/or human. This session aims to engage the community in seeking innovative ways to improve modeling of the near-Earth space radiation and plasma environment for the benefit of space weather operations and applications, which includes identifying knowledge gaps and research and measurement needs to help advance science understanding of this important region with complex dynamics. The session welcomes submissions on topics including (but not limited to):
- how AI/machine learning, data assimilation, ensemble modeling, open science, and other innovative methods can be utilized
- how we can continuously carry out user-oriented systematic model validations (together with uncertainty quantification) to ensure the healthy cycle of space weather models and to ready them for space weather purposes.
This session is in line with COSPAR/ISWAT G3 Cluster activities and objectives (
