Title: Webinar #32 - CoCoRaHS WxTalk: Space Weather: What is it and why should you care?
Date: Thursday, July 24, 2014
Time: 1:00 PM Eastern, Noon Central, 11:00 AM Mountain, 10:00 AM Pacific

"This presentation will include a review of some of the basics of space weather. Starting with the sun and solar flares and then moving through the solar wind and the Earth’s magnetosphere, our speaker, Rodney Viereck will describe how space weather storms are formed and evolve until they arrive at Earth. The NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center provides alerts, watches, and warnings of space weather storms to a number of customer groups and technologies. Rodney will describe how a forecaster forecasts space weather storms and describe what happens when they arrive at Earth. What are the impacts and what technologies are affected? Who are the customers for space weather products and services and why do they care. And finally, whether it is flying in airplanes, using GPS satellite navigation, or trying to see the Aurora, Rodney will review some of the ways that the public might experience space weather."
