SEPRAD - Workshop

Forecasting of Solar Energetic Particle Radiation Effects

September 18th - 19th, 2017, Seibersdorf, Austria

Seibersdorf Laboratories and the International Foundation High Altitude Research Stations Jungfraujoch and Gornergrat organizied a new workshop on radiation effects on aviation due to Solar Energetic Particle (SEP) events focused on:

  • Nowcast of radiation effects on aviation
  • Forecast of SEP effects
  • Innovative developments and future needs

The workshop addressed scientists, researchers, governmental and non-governmental agencies, airliners, aviation service providers, weather forecast experts and students interested in space radiation and its effects on aviation. Invited international experts presented the state of the art of this field. We discussed to reveal deficiency of knowledge, missing measured data and limitations of models in order to improve nowcast of radiation effects due to SEP and progress towards their forecast in future.
