Space weather, Transitioning Research to Operations
Research in solar-terrestrial physics, development of space weather services and mitigation of space weather hazards:
“Space weather refers to conditions on the Sun, in the solar wind, and within Earth’s magnetosphere, ionosphere and thermosphere that can influence the performance and reliability of space-borne and ground-based technological systems and can endanger human life or health”.
The main users of space weather services are:
Development of advanced data analysis techniques for the extraction of useful knowledge, control, and forecasting in interdisciplinary applications.
SOLARNET, Integrating High Resolution Solar Physics, supported by the EU research and innovation funding program EU Horizon 2020.
Operating Space Weather Services:
– Geomagnetic Storm Forecasting Service StormFocus
StormFocus service provides advance warnings about the future geomagnetic storm magnitude on an hourly basis.
The forecast is based on real-time solar wind and interplanetary magnetic field data, provided by the DSCOVR spacecraft which is located at the L1 Sun-Earth liberation point 1 500 000 km upstream of Earth. Forecasts are updated every hour and published on SpaceWeather.Ru.
– Updated medium-term sunspot number prediction service
A universal technique that improves medium-term prediction methods as they are monthly updated using the latest available observations of smoothed sunspot numbers using an adaptive Kalman filter. Forecasts are updated every month and published on the World Data Center for the production, preservation and dissemination of the international sunspot number (SILSO).
- Forecast of the auroral oval boundaries and aurora borealis on Yamal island
Forecast based on real-time DSCOVR solar wind and interplanetary magnetic field data. The forecast provides estimates of geomagnetic latitudes of poleward and equatorward boundaries of the auroral oval, and equatorward boundary of the diffusive aurora for the next hour. Forecasts are updated every hour and published on SpaceWeather.Ru.

Course “Experimental data processing”
The course introduces students to practically useful approaches of data processing for control and forecasting.
The focus is on identifying the hidden and implicit features and regularities of dynamical processes using experimental data. The course exposes data processing methods from multiple vantage points: standard data processing methods and their hidden capacity to solve difficult problems; statistical methods based on state-space models; methods of extracting the regularities of a process on the basis of identifying key parameters. The course addresses the problems in navigation, solar physics, geomagnetism, space weather and biomedical research.
Course content and main topics: Experimental data processing
Course “Data analysis for Space Weather”
The course introduces students to Solar-Terrestrial physics, Space Weather and practically useful approaches of data analysis for study, forecasting, and mitigation of space weather effects. The course provides an overview of Sun-Earth connections, starting from the interior of the Sun and ending in the Earth’s magnetosphere. To gain insight into this field, we focus on such topics as: solar interior and solar structure, solar atmosphere, solar wind, solar flares and coronal mass ejections, as well as associated geomagnetic storms and polar auroras. These phenomena drive Space Weather with the implications for space-borne and ground-based technological systems (satellites, human spaceflight, airlines, power systems and pipelines). We also examine the space weather effects on technology and human health, hazard assessment, mitigation and forecasting, space environment data, scientific and service products.
Course content and main topics: Data analysis for Space Weather
Course “Space Sector Course”
This course examines the domain of space from multiple vantage points — space as a business, a way of life, as industry, and as a fulfillment of human dreams. In addition, it examines space-related issues that drive key international regulatory, economic, and global policy. To gain insight into these different dimensions, we examine space through three different lenses: sub-sectors, technologies, and organizations.
Course content and main topics: Space Sector
Course “Solar Observations with a Telescope”
1-week individual study period course. Course co-instructor: Galina Chikunova
The purpose of this course is to give a brief understanding of how astrophotography works, how should we work with a telescope and what we can observe with it in conditions of living in Moscow. The other part is headed to give students an introduction to Solar Physics, which events we can observe on the Sun, what information we can receive from this data and why it is important to know. The course provides lectures and 1-2 practical classes of observing the Sun, plus the session of data processing.
