Description

Analogous to the weather in Earth’s lower atmosphere, Space Weather involves the changing environmental conditions in near-Earth space or the volume of space from the Sun's surface to the Earth. Space weather can also involve the interactions of solar activity with other planets or at deep-space spacecraft. Much of space weather is driven by energy carried through interplanetary space by the solar wind from solar activity such as flares and coronal mass ejections. The main goal of this WG is to provide a clearinghouse of information on space weather organizations and activities in countries around the world.
