Space Weather Modeling Framework User Conference Comes to Climate & Space

swmfThe 2017 Space Weather Modeling Framework User Conference held its bi-annual meeting at Climate & Space February 27 – March 1, 2017. The conference took place in the auditorium of the Space Research Building.  

The SWMF was developed at the University of Michigan’s Center for Space Environment Modeling (CSEM) with researchers from the Climate & Space department. CSEM is led by Tamas Gombosi, the Rollin M. Gerstacker Professor of Engineering and professor of atmospheric, oceanic and space sciences and aerospace engineering. Last fall, the SWMF was adopted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Space Weather Prediction Center.

In the summer of 2014, it was decided to bring all users of SWMF together with the developers to discuss issues surrounding SWMF to foster understand and usage of the framework.
