The lecture subject matter covers various aspects related to Space Weather, comprising cosmic ray particle transport theory, plasma physics, solar physics, heliospheric physics, computer simulations for modelling and understanding local Space Weather, and the impact on Earth’s atmosphere, satellites, and space.The ISWC will take place in two parts, with the first part taking place virtually from 1 – 15 June 2022 due to COVID-19 health risks and travel restrictions.
