AOSS space weather model selected for national use

modelAn AOSS space weather model beat out four other contenders for a spot in the national Space Weather Prediction Center’s forecasting toolbox. It is the first time that computer models based on a firm understanding of physics have overtaken simpler, statistics-based models to predict magnetic disturbances due to space weather. The new model can also give information about where the effects will be weaker or stronger around Earth. Read more
