The Center for Integrated Space Weather Modeling Summer School 2007, July 23 - August 3, Boston University

Space Weather Phenomena, Consequences, and Modeling or Reality, Harsh Reality, and Virtual Reality

The seventh Center for Integrated Space Weather Modeling (CISM) Summer School will be held at Boston University July 23 - August 3, 2007. The two- week school will closely follow the model of the previous successful Summer Schools, which comprehensively immersed students in the subject of space weather, what it is, what it does, and what can be done about it. The CISM summer school supplements standard curricula relating to the physics, meteorology, and climatology of space with integrated overviews of the solar-terrestrial weather system from the Sun to the earth, its effects and consequences, and the state of the art in modeling it. A unique feature of the school is a series of three-hour computer labs to learn how to use models being developed by CISM to understand the space environment and to make space weather predictions. The team of instructors will be led by Jeffrey Hughes, Harlan Spence, Ramon Lopez, and John Lyon.

The school is intended primarily for students about to enter graduate school in the space sciences or early in their graduate careers. We encourage supervisors to recommend the school to their prospective or current students. However others with a professional interest in space weather have also attended and benefited from earlier schools. Further details and the application form, including a request for financial support, can be found under Summer School on the CISM web site at http://www.bu.edu/CISM/. Applications are due by May 1. CISM is an NSF Science and Technology Center.
