Description

The Space Weather Computational Laboratory is a Unix and PC based modeling and simulation facility devoted to research analysis of naturally occurring electrically charged gases (a.k.a. geoplasmas) in the outer reaches of Earth's atmosphere. Research in this field is of growing concern to military operations. Space-based and space-dependent military technologies, including satellite navigation, HF radio communications, and over-the-horizon radars are directly affected by the weather dynamics that occur in geoplasmas.

Faculty and students have acquired many of the leading space weather models within the DoD and scientific communities, along with supporting data and software necessary to pursue publishable research.

Our collaboration currently includes several leading space weather research institutions across the United States, such as the Center for Atmospheric and Space Science (CASS) at Utah State University (USU), the Applied Physics Lab (APL) of Johns Hopkins University (JHU), the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA), the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), the Air Force Research Laboratory Space Vehicles Directorate (AFRL/RV), and the Univerity of Massachusetts Lowell Center for Atmospheric Research (UMLCAR).
